Yes, it's a real error; see <http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.8>.

I would recommend not using JavaScript for your purpose.  An HTML
preprocessor or server-side script would be much more appropriate and
would significantly improve your page's accessibility.  Search engine
robots are unlikely to find your links if they are generated by
JavaScript.
