A session is generated with session_start(). The browser is set not to accept cookies. Inside the HTML-Code without the Session there would appear a code like:

<a href="/index.php?entryid=0&amp;category=0"></a>

With the automatic adding of the session-id it will look like:

<a href="/index.php?entryid=0&amp;category=0&PHPSESSID=6865f7d1491ccaddd676430ede3328"></a>

According to  this does not qualify as valid HTML:

" The validator has found an entity (something like &this;) that it doesn't recognize. There are a few possibilities:

      A reference to a URI that uses & as a separator between parameters, such as "".

      To solve this problem, simply replace all the &'s in attribute values with &amp; (user agents will convert them back before following the links.) "

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

You can change this behavior by reading (and especially the arg_separator.output stuff).
