           Summary: Untrue error statement
           Product: Validator
           Version: 0.6.7
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://webworks.hdcompany.nl/cgi/engine.cgi/Contact2
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: link@pobox.com
        ReportedBy: sinister@hdcompany.nl
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

At the given URL the validator complains of an unclosed </p>, yet this is not
true... (I checked it twice)

What is true; the html is not valid html-4.01-transitional, since the <p> tag
contains a block-element (<form> to be precise). Instead of saying something
like '<form> not allowed in <p>' you get a nice wild-goose-chase message.

I tried the same with more simplified HTML
(http://webworks.hdcompany.nl/test.html) but this gave the same results.
