I have lots of unescaped ampersands in this form. How can I fix this so I can validate my page as html5

    Ate you serious man. Take a step back and read your post - it don't explain anything. May 1 '14 at 13:28
  • ok so it is not a great description, however will not take a lecture from someone who uses the phrase "it don't explain anything" if you were looking for the contracted form of "does not" the word is "doesn't".

    Anyway it is a simple thing the profile:Edit module from big mighty robot doesn't (see what I did there) validate. Can I make it pass the validator by escaping the ampersands.

    What specific tags are you referring to? Can you post a code example of what you're seeing? May 2 '14 at 15:12

The simple answer would be to go through the add-on code and replace any ampersands with html entities but I'm guessing you've already tried that?

I don't think there will be a quick way to do it other than doing that.

I would say that you really don't need to worry about it. Validation is a guide, not a requirement. Especially at this level. Are you experiencing problems with the forms? If they work, don't worry about it. They will continue to do so until we're all old and grey.
