    I can't figure out how to make them XHTML compliant, as I dont' want to break my bragging rights that my site adheres to XHTML Transitional according to W3C.

    The main problem seems to be this:

    cannot generate system identifier for general entity "playListId"

    .../wa/viewAlbum?selectedItemId=2743388&playListId=2743701">
    With the little red arrow under the p in playListId. Is Apple giving bad (standards wise) code or in order to stay standards compliant, should I just not but iTunes Music Links on my site?

    You can try replacing the & in that statement with & a m p ; (except leave out the spaces I have added). I use that for querystrings when I'm working with XSL, which is pretty much all the time. I don't know it will cause problems with iTunes though.

    Yup, the ampersand should work just fine.

    Thanks!

    The Ampersand works... Now why couldn't I think of that? :eek:

    :) Back to standards complaince. :) It just renders so much more nicely.

    I'd be very surprised if it does cause problems because the iTMS UI is based on the safari engine which does 'support' html entities (i.e. amp;) in urls.
