Google fonts pipe symbol fails w3c validator
My index.html failed the W3C validator because Google Fonts supplied an unencoded pipe symbol in the HTML Link tag. I was able to get it to pass by replacing the pipe symbol with the HTML code "%7CPT+".

Hi Chris, I had a similar issue when running the HTML validator. The snipet of code from Google Web Fonts failed. However, the site renders exactly as I expected it to, so I'm not sure if it's an issue on the validator's end or Google's.
hi i try %7C, or | and nothing works. Where did you found %7C ? and where do you put it inside inside the link ? <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Changa+One%7COpen+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
or i tried also : <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Changa+One %7C Open+Sans:400italic,700italic,400,700,800' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
and also with ""
so it makes me crazy
