Beware copy and pasting ad text into your web pages

Just discovered that you shouldn’t trust code provided by others, no matter how big the business. Especially don’t trust that code when you have a link to the W3C validator! Although some code, such as the Spread Firefox ads, is perfect, others neglect to properly encode the ampersands within the URL. And this, of course will break your validation.


My name is Peter Holloway and having lived in Southport, England for 20 years, followed by a couple of years back in Northern Ireland I'm now working as an IT Manager in West Sussex. I was born in Northern Ireland and raised in the suburbs of Belfast just off the Saintfield Road, attended Cairnshill Primary School and Annadale Grammar School. I studied for a London University BD at Belfast Bible College.
