Hi, I have used the validator on

  and get an error message where I think it is not wrong
 code snippet:
<div id='navigation'>
<form name='backissue_select' action='' method='get'>
<select name='edition' onchange="this.form.submit('backissue_select')">

the error message was:
Line 123, column 70: document type does not allow element "select" here; missing one of "p", "h1", "h2", "h3", "h4", "h5", "h6", "div", "pre", "address", "fieldset", "ins", "del" start-tag


I have obviously just used the select within a div and within a form tag.
Did the validator try to validate the select as in backissue_select???
