I cannot get nested unordered lists to validate, yet the HTML 4.01 Transitional specification says that they should, and the XHTML 1.0 Strict does not deprecate nested lists.  The following code does not validate and the W3C HTML Validation service complains about the second <ul> as not being allowed there and assuming I meant <li>:

    <ul>
      <li> Produce a formally documented consensus amoung all project stakeholdlers (e.g., client,
           users, project champions, project management, developers) concerning either the:</li>
      <ul>
        <li> Vision of the next version [incremental iteration] of the application.</li>
        <li> Requirements for the application.</li>
        <li> Scope of the application.</li>
        <li> Boundaries of the application.</li>
      </ul>
      <li> Provide input (e.g., number of use cases and use case paths) to the endeavor&rsquo;s
 ! ! ! ;          cost and schedule estimation tasks.</li> 

   <ul>

The FAQs do not help here.  What is right, the specifications or the validation program.  You can find the actual webpage that was not validated at:

As far as I can tell, this should validate.  Can someone please explain why it doesn't?  Thank you.
