This is the page source code. This is the NAG your validator gives me:

This page is not Valid HTML 4.01 Transitional!

Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML

   1.Line 24, column 3: document type does not allow element "UL" here;
missing one of "APPLET", "OBJECT", "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag


Now in case I am not completely mistaking, those tags are not required to
be used with lists. Is this bug in DTD or the validator? Please respond.
