Sure it does, as it should. That's not a bug in the validator, that's an issue
in the document which the validator correctly flags, and it even says in the
explanation below the error message:

| You tried to include the "<" character in your page:
| you should escape it as "&lt;"

Even if your JS is "correct", it is incorrectly embedded in the XHTML doc.
