As the error message explanation states, the most likely cause for this
error is that you have attempted to put a block-level element (h3)
inside an inline element (such as "<a>", "<span>", or "<font>").

Since you are not giving a URI, it is difficult for us to guess exactly
what the problem in your document is, but my assumption is that you
forgot to close an inline element, or that you tried to put h3 inside an
inline element.
