While your observation may be true in general it is off the mark in 
this instance. Try both these documents against the HTML 2.0 DTD - 
they are both valid:

 <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN">
 <title>LI test</title><ul><li>one</li><li>two</li></ul>

 <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN">
 <title>LI test 2</title><ul><li>one<li>two</ul>
