phpthumb - html/xhtml validation problem

How can I get my webpage to validate to XHTML strict if I am using the
commands as given in the phpthumb demo:

<img src="../phpThumb.php?src=images/disk.jpg&w=200">

This gives validation errors as I'm not allowed the 'w' or other
parameters.

I wondered if it was possible to do something like this (bare with me)

$thisThumb = phpThumb(src=images/disk.jpg&w=200);
echo '<img src="'.$thisThumb.'">;

But I am unsure of what the variable will contain, I ideally want to
create the thumbnail and for the result to be a string pointing to the
location of said thumbnail.

I've checked google but there doesn't seem to be any issues with using
phpthumb and validating html. (Am I missing something) :)

Thanks in advance for any replies. (p.s. please keep in on topic).

The validation error is because of the ampersand.

Use: <img src="../phpThumb.php?src=images/disk.jpg&amp;w=200">

(if it is XHTML, use <img src="../phpThumb.php?src=images/disk.jpg&amp;w=
200" />

You'll also need to supply an alt attribute to pass validation as well.

No, that's not the reason.
<img src="../phpThumb.php?src=images/disk.jpg&amp;w=200">
Will be valid.

Well, we'll forgive you if you promise to stop top-posting.

Okay, I have to ask...why the "rule" against top posting? Personally I
VERY much prefer it. And where can I find these rules; is there a FAQ?

It is a commonly accepted convention. Most people to perefer to see a
comment immediately below the thing to which it is commenting. You are in
the very small minority. Note that this wa inline posting. If I had been
responding to several points in a larger post then you, the reader, would
have very little idea as to just which part I was responding. This way, it
is clear.

Google for netiquette, there are hundreds of pages explaining it.
The main reason: keep the same flow in the conversation. The normal answer
of non-believers to that is:"But all the information is already in the post
before?!".

To this we say: Remember this is usenet, differnet newsservers, between
which a message can often be delayed for hours or even not arrive at all.
(Unfortunately, I detected that last problem a couple of times a week in
this ng, I'll have to contact my ISP about what's going on.) I may not be
able to see the message you're replying to, and allthough you quote, reading
from the bottom up is terribly annoying. Also, when setting a follow-up to a
more relevant newsgroup, it's nice to give the readers there a normal
starting point for the conversation.

Consider this flow:

Ah, now I see.
This is usenet, they might not be there.
>But why don't they first read the proevious posts then?
>>Well, It's a lot easier to read, and follows the
flow of the conversation
Why do people keep asking me to toppost?

Hmmm...from wikipedia:

"Objections to top-posting, as a rule, seem to come from persons who
first went online in the earlier days of Usenet, and in communities
that date to Usenet's early days. Among the most vehement communities
are those in the Usenet comp.lang hierarchy,.."

Well put!

Well, the second argument is. It's probably derived from our our wish for
well-structured data. And according to the other link given in this
conversation, I'm even more strict because I'm dutch :-)

About being from the early days on internet. Hardly. I got my first computer
in 1999, my first usage of newsgroups dates back to 2003. But I know either
buggy or lagging newsservers, so I know what a pain it is to decypher what
an original question was, and tend to accomodate other users who might not
have seen the earlier post, in the hope they'll do the same for me.

Please don't top-post. Your replies belong following or interspersed
with properly trimmed quotes. See the majority of other posts in the

Hmmz, didn't even realize that due to the fact HTML is completely ignored
here. There was a plaintext alternative I saw. I won't plonk just yet, but
it's a very, very bad habit to post HTML young man...

Try doing a search in the newsgroups, ala Google Group search, for
something. The thread becomes unreadable even tho your immediate
hedonistic tendency feels good at the time you top post.

Don't understands why new posters and some old ones do not understand
this. I guess you have to try to search for something to understand it.

I am new here in th php newsgroups. It seems to be a big problem here in
the PHP newsgroups. I am coming from the Java newsgroups where this is
not a big problem.
Thanks in Advance...
