Description David Highley 2011-07-30 20:16:41 UTC
I have submitted two pages that have validated with errors that look good to me. The first page I commented out the closing paragraph tags were it complained that there was no open paragraph tag. The second example I have not changed and it has nested ul tags.

I can tell the validator has gone through an upgrade as the file,, was relocated from past runs through the validator.

OK, I have figured out that ul tags are not valid in paragraph tags and the really odd one is nested ul lists. I finally figured out you do not close the preceeding li tag before opening the nested ul tag. The validator never caught these two issues before.
