nested lists depreciated?

Hi folks,

I've been having some problems getting pages to validate (specifically as
XHTML Transitional) when they have a nested list in them. ex:

<!-- begin snippet -->

<ul>

<li>one</li>
<li>two</li>

	<ol>

	<li>one</li>
	<li>two</li>

	</ol>

</ul>

<!-- end snippet -->

After spending a lot of time scouring the specs, the only reference I can
find to nested lists is in the HTML 4.01 spec. It actually doesn't say
anything about them but gives an example that says "depreciated" above it.

If anyone can enlighten me on the subject and/or tell me how to make it
validate, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
