I was validating XHTML 1.1 and got message 65

The mentioned element is not allowed to appear in the context which you've placed it; the other mentioned elements are the only ones that are allowed there. This might mean that you need a containing element, or possibly that you've forgotten to close a previous element. The most common cause for this message is that you have attempted to put a block-level element (such as "<p>" or "<table>") inside an inline element (such as "<a>", "<span>", or "<font>").

XHTML 1.1 doesn't have <font>
