There is nothing invalid about that fragment of code ...

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fdorward.me.uk%2Ftmp%2Fvalid.xhtml

... so presumably you are trying to put it somewhere where paragraphs
are not allowed (such as inside another paragraph).

Equally the same code with out the <p> and </p> tags would be a valid
fragment of XHTML - but if you put it as a child element of <body> it
wouldn't validate (because the <body> element accepts block elements as
its children) if you are using a Strict DTD.
