noscript validation issue

If I validate this code: 

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<META NAME="author" CONTENT="Paul Mackinlay, Web Orientated Technologies, 
<p>Your currency is set to
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

I get this error:
#Line 17, column 4: end tag for element "P" which is not open 

However, the code is HTML4.01 compliant if I remove 

As far as I am aware I am allowed to embed <noscript> tags within <p> tags, 
in which case there may be a bug in the validator. If I am wrong can 
somebody show me the relevent W3C documentation.
