I've been hearing this so often that I finally stuck it on a (thus far
brief) page explaining common validation problems:

http://www.htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/problems.html#script

Additionally, there's one error that the validator won't catch since it
doesn't check HTML output from JavaScript:

>document.write('<A HREF="http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri='
>+ document.location.href + '&warning=0">' + CSSpic + '</A>');

The "&" must be written as "&amp;" to avoid being an invalid entity.  (I
think I'll add this to the Common Problems page...)
