Yes, in that case.  But I still like the similar trick...

<span><img src="2003.jpg" alt="2003" /></span>

...where <span> allows me to use icons within <pre>.

Sometimes the nesting rules are a pain, e.g. you need
<frameset><!-- ugly frames --><noframes><body><h1> for
a <h1> within <noframes>.  The validator probably can't
detect "serious" vs. "dubious" indirect nesting errors.
Or "utter useless" like your <address> in <p> example,

                        Bye, Frank
