I suck? No, blame PHP!
I received word that my website was producing invalid XHTML. Naturally I went to investigate...
XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Line Number 21, Column 59:<h2><a class="stamp" href="?start=13&count=1&PHPSESSID=82...d4">2002-11-13 23:25:55 UTC</a> Can someone please make IE not suck?</h2>
Unfortunately, by default, PHP uses an unescaped ampersand (&) to do this, which is clearly invalid HTML. Since I'm sending this page as XHTML, Mozilla sees this error and quite rightly says "Ey up! Something's not right here!". It is possible to change this behaviour by editing the configuration files, but since I don't have access to these files, this presents a slight problem.
For now, I am disabling the use of sessions on this website. This means that I can't login to add any further posts, but hopefully the e-mail that Hixie sent to our host will get this issue resolved ASAP. Either that or I find another way around the problem.
