What do you mean they can't be nested? Try this:

<div>
<ul>
   <li>a</li>
   <li>b</li>
   <li>c</li>
   <li style="{list-style:none}">
      <ul>
         <li>1</li>
         <li>2</li>
         <li>3</li>
      </ul>
   </li>
<ul>
</div>

The LI tag is a "list item".  The UL and OL tags are "unordered list" and "ordered list" respectively.  In HTML, a list is made up of list items.  The rule is this:

1) UL and OL can only have one type of child node: LI
2) The LI node can only exist immediately underneath an OL or UL node
3) You can put ANYTHING inside a LI node

This is valid:
<ul>
  <li><a href="#">Link 1</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">Link 2</a></li>
  <li>
    <a href="#">Link 3</a>
    <ol>
      <li><a href="#">Link 3-1</a></li>
      <li><span>Text inside a span</span></li>
    </ol>
  </li>
  <li>
    <div>Some text here</div>
  </li>
</ul>

Also, if you are using a CSS RESET stylesheet, then you will need to add this to your site stylesheet to get your bullets and formatting back.

ul {
  padding: 1em;
  list-style: disc outside none;
}
li {
  margin-left: 2em;
}
