Others have already commented on the fact that this was actually  
incorrect, but I am curious whether there was any particular book or  
site where you would have seen this claim? We received quite a few  
messages recently "complaining" that the validator supposedly should  
allow such constructs, and I am starting to wonder if a prominent  
site or book isn't responsible for spreading this.

Thank you.
