“p” Tag in “li” as Valid HTML4
If you have “p” tag inside “li”, it's valid! Even in html 4 strict.
(Note that technically any ending tag of “p” and “li” can be omitted.)
Test page: W3C HTML Validation Problem: p in li.
With this situation, at this point, you wonder what's validator supposed to be anymore.
