After a bit of thinking, make that:

[[
    <p>
       The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that 
element is
       not currently open. In other words, there is an end tag not 
matching any
       opened tag.
    </p>
    <p>
       If the matching opening tag seems to be present, it could be a 
case where an
       element cannot be within another element (e.g. you can't have a 
<ul> in a <p>),
       hence <em>implicitly</em> closing the tag, and leaving an 
orphaned closing tag.
    </p>
    <p>
       If this error occured in a script section of your document, you 
should probably
       read this <a 
href="http://validator.w3.org/docs/help.html#faq-javascript">FAQ 
entry</a>.
    </p>
