[Validator] error validating HTML4.01 PHP maden page

P: n/a

When validating my web site, I've got the following error :
Line 31, column 26: cannot generate system identifier for general
entity "PHPSESSID"

<a href="index.php?id=3&PHPSESSID=8604f064ab03c75b6c7 efe1846ef2da9"

An entity reference was found in the document, but there is no
reference by that name defined. Often this is caused by misspelling the
reference name, unencoded ampersands, or by leaving off the trailing
semicolon (;). The most common cause of this error is unencoded
ampersands in URLs as described by the WDG in "Ampersands in URLs".

Entity references start with an ampersand (&) and end with a semicolon
(;). If you want to use a literal ampersand in your document you must
encode it as "&amp;" (even inside URLs!). Be careful to end entity
references with a semicolon or your entity reference may get
interpreted in connection with the following text. Also keep in mind
that named entity references are case-sensitive; &Aelig; and &aelig;
are different characters.

Note that in most documents, errors related to entity references will
trigger up to 5 separate messages from the Validator. Usually these
will all disappear when the original problem is fixed.

But the PHPSESSID is added by the server ! it's valid, isn't it ?

So, is there a mistake in the validator ? (or how can I correct it)

This is very naughty! Your original posting had

If you use Google's broken (!!) Usenet interface, then please
make sure that you do not change the Subject at will.
Google Groups is *broken* because it omits everything from the
Subject enclosed in brackets.

Get yourself a real newsreader and abandon that abomination called
google groups, at least for posting to usenet. You'll do yourself and
everyone else a favor if you do.
