It did notice the <p>, it also noticed the <ul>.

In HTML 4.*, <ul> can not exist inside <p>, and </p> is optional.


<p> la la la <ul>

Is the same as:

<p> la la la </p> <ul>

The / has different meanings in HTML and XHTML.

In XHTML <br /> is the same as <br></br>

In HTML <br /> is the same as <br>&gt;

Nothing wrong with the validator here, it just knows HTML better then 
you do.
