"There's an easy fix, which is to replace each ampersand in a link href with ampersand amp;. The same URL will be requested from the ad server, and the ESPN front page will be closer to validating."

unfortunately that doesn't seem to work in all cases... I have an & in an href attribute on our site, and some browsers (it's a tiny proportion, but then anything that isn't IE is ;) seem to send the & to the server when the link is followed rather than decoding it.
