ArkEditor is causing sites sites to fail W3C HTML5 validation.

See example site validation <>.

Can this issue of "& probably should have been escaped as &amp;." be rectified so that sites don't fail HTML5 validation?

Thanks & regards ...

Hi pkortge,

The HTML5 validator is incorrect, it is too generic so it's bringing up false positives. The HTML5 is still experimental. Please see:

That rule is not required for a URL link.

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards
