epubcheck challenges ordered and unordered list tags in epub

People who create ePub ebooks learn quickly (a) the necessity and (b) the frustration of dealing with the obscure messages created by epubcheck. EpubCheck 3.0 beta 4 is a slight improvement over the old 1.2.

Current issue: HTML 1.1 certainly allows ordered list <OL> and unordered list <UL> tags. EpubCheck objects: ERROR: filename].xhtml(location in file): element "ul" not allowed here; expected the element end-tag, text or element "a", "abbr", ... etc. = for a long list of accepted tags.

What should be changed in the attached file to pass epubcheck? [The real subscript is .xhtml rather than .xml.]joura-48.xml

Solution provided by a friend... simply delete the <p> and </p> tags surrounding the ordered or unordered list.
