    Ghost validation error

    Every time I run my markup through validation I get this error:

    Error Line 131 column 6: character data is not allowed here.

    <ul>���<li><a href="http://mysite.com/2006/11/30/chis-debu

    You have used character data somewhere it is not permitted to appear. Mistakes that can cause this error include putting text directly in the body of the document without wrapping it in a container element (such as a <p>aragraph</p>) or forgetting to quote an attribute value (where characters such as "%" and "/" are common, but cannot appear without surrounding quotes).
    I check my code and there's nothing there. What's causing this and how can I fix it? Thank you.

    Strange characters

    A look at the actual document would help, but you may have character entities in there that aren't supported by the character encoding you've specified (if at all).

    There is an invalid character between the <ul> and the <li> - either there is something there that shouldnt be or you've copied and pasted it from somewhere and there is an invalid non-printable character there. You should be able to quite safely delete that character

    I found out that it's the plugin I'm using. Had some bug but now it's fixed. Thanks for replies anyway
