In a file that I submitted for validation, the W3C Validator flagged the 
<pre> tag with the following message:

document type does not allow element "PRE" here; missing one of "APPLET", 
"OBJECT", "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag 

This tag is defined in section 9.3.4 of the 4.01 HTML specification, where 
it does not seem to be related to applet, object, iframe or button tags.

What don't I understand correctly?
