Error relating to list within paragraph

Dear Sirs,


When checking the page whose URL is given at the foot of this message,
I was confronted by an error message in relation to the following
structure (where TEXT is the material included) :

<p>TEXT

	<ul>
		<li>TEXT</li>

		<li>TEXT</li>

		...

	</ul>

</p>

The message said that the </p> at the end of this structure had been
found but was not preceded by a <p> tag.  I circumvented the problem
-- what ever it might have been -- by commenting out the closing </p>
tag, whereupon the validator gave me a 'clean bill of health' (so to
speak).

I think the <p> ought to be matched by a </p> and that, therefore,
this is an error in the validator.  But, hey, what do I know ?

(This file contains the original </p> in the form <!-- /p -->.)


Thank you for providing this service.


Best regards,

Vernon Wright
