Character & not allowed

P: n/a
As per W3C validator,
I replaced all & that appeared into URL or links with "&" in this
webpage:
www.roberto089.com/press_089.html

I still get two similar errors:

Line 50, Column 92: character "&" not allowed in attribute
specification list.
....bloomberg.com/apps/news?
pid=20601099"&"refer=dine"&"sid=ab982jyHud Kg"
Thanks for help

In both cases, the & are parts of URIs. The quotes around them
should be removed. The way you have coded this, each URI begins with
"href=" and ends just before the first &amp.

Have you been using Netscape and now feel abandoned by AOL?
Then use SeaMonkey. Go to <http://www.seamonkey-project.org/>.

Also, remove the terminal / from the ends of tag declarations. These
generally belong only for XHTML or within URIs.
