The following  nested list refuses to validate, with a missing < li> tag
error message at start of line 6. However if  I delete the </li> tag from
the end of line 5 it validates fine! Is this me being dim or a bug? 

01        <UL>
02          <LI>Rules for calculating consideration, e.g. percentage price,
- blear - blear   <br><br></li>
03          <LI>Final Maturity date and price<br><br></li>
04          <LI>Optional maturity (Call, Put and sinking fund)
05          <LI>Accrual rules (where appropriate)<br><br></li>
06            <ul class="indent">
07              <li>Coupon Rate and standard coupon dates may be annual,
semi-annual or quarterly<br><br></li>
08              <li>Both numerator and denominator are coded for  - blear -
blear   <br><br></li>
09              <li>Any standard number of days adjustment<br><br></li>
10              <li>Any standard rounding factor may be defined with rules
for rounding or truncation<br><br></li>

coupon date<br><br></li>

13             </ul>
