How to Fix The Problem

<ul> elements should only contain only <li>, <script> or <template> elements.

The Algorithm, In Simple Terms

The engine scans for <ul> elements with direct child elements that are not <li>, <script> or <template> elements.

Why Is It Important?

Not using HTML according to the specification leads to confusion for user agents and assistive technologies that rely on correct semantic information to present a coherent representation of the page.
