   My guess is that the list must be contained within a list element like this:

I don't see why anyone has to guess. The DTDs are all quite clear that
UL (and OL) can only contain LIs (except that HTML3 allows LH as well
and HTML Pro adds HR). LIs can containa variety of other things,
including more lists.
