I would say that the validator is wrong, but I'm pretty sure that it
isn't. It validates _my_ nested list without any hitch.

And it is correct.

You failed to provide a copy of non-validating code, so it is hard to
say where you went wrong.

Most likely you attempted to start a sublist *between* list items, which
isn't possible (or logical); sublists must be contained within a list
item.
