As i pasted the button code into edit HTML editor of blogger app by Google I got parsing error that at column 67 of the line with <script src="http//...... sb&currency=USD" the entity "currency" must end with ";" delimiter. As i put a ";" delimiter i got another error that entity has referenced but not declared. Any idea that how can I resolve?

Hi @s43_M 

This sounds like something Google should help with, as they own the app (and its parsing mechanism). 

 

A shot in the dark, as I've never used it, but have you tried replacing all & with & ?

 

If this doesn't work, I'd be tempted to URL-encode the entire button URL, just to see how the app reacts. Sometimes, parsers have a problem with a specific set of characters and these have to be escaped in a certain way, be it through URL-encoding or with another character (forward slash, frequently).
