I agree, it is unfortunate that the advertisement inserts do not correctly set
the 'upload' capabilities of the validator at <http://validator.w3.org/> and
confidently know that *your html* is okay.
Even so, if you do get validation errors related to url links that you have
included, you can fix these by using 'entity encoding' or 'url encoding'.
'Entity encoding' is what you do when you want to show, say a 'greater-than'
symbol '>' in html - by using > or say using a 'non-breaking' space
'URL encoding' is what you sometimes see when a webpage name has a 'bad
charater' in it, such as a space encoded as '%20'. Other things such as quotes
might need to be encoded '%22'. For more details and a URL encoding converter
