Hi,
When I create nested lists, the nested list is flagged as incorrect, which then causes other end tags to be marked as incorrect. Including further on such as divs and spans etc...

Code:
<ul>
   <li>Fish</li>
   <ul>              << Flagged as Incorrect
      <li>Trout</li>
      <li>Cod</li>
      <li>Salmon</li>
   </ul>
   <li>Birds</li> << Flagged as incorrect
   <ul>             << Flagged as incorrect
      <li>Eagle</li>
      <li>Crow</li>
      <li>Swan</li>
   </ul>             
   <li>Nothing</li>
</ul>                    << Flagged as incorrect


It does though display correctly as an HTML stanza

Kind regards,

If you write correct HTML, validator won't complain. After all if not for that purpose, what validator is for?
As of end tags, as soon as you place a tag in an another tag that does not permit it, the outer one is considered closed. In your particular case, first nested ul closed its parent ul because ul can not be nested in ul directly.

Hi,

Nested lists have been fully endorsed by W3C. See www / w3schools / com / html / html_list.asp
Search for nested lists

as per

Quote:

Nested HTML Lists
List can be nested (lists inside lists):

Example
<ul>
<li>Coffee</li>
<li>Tea
<ul>
<li>Black tea</li>
<li>Green tea</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>Milk</li>
</ul>
Note: List items can contain new list, and other HTML elements, like images and links, etc.


I think there maybe there is a deficiency in the API / algorithm

Kind regards,

Well, w3school's example is correct. Yours is not.

Thank you for your advice.
I have now reset my code to follow EXACTLY the formula shown.
Even on a large screen I still miss the obvious.

I shall in future more more trust and faith in what PhpED is telling me!!!

Kind regards,
