  • Thank you for sharing.

    Or are we to infer that there is a question implied in your post?

    Is it that you can't put a link in an unordered list? You can, but it must be in a list item.

    Titanic, the movie, as CSS:

    @mixin iceberg {
         float: none;

    #titanic {
         @include iceberg;

  • You are missing the list element:


    A list is not a legal container for anything other than a list element.

  • And, just to pile on, <ul> can't contain an <a> tag in HTML 4.01 Transitional, in HTML 4.01, in XHTML 1.0 Strict, in HTML 5 ....

    It's not the doctype, it's basic HTML.   As already mentioned, a list tag contains list items.  Feel free to put links inside the list items.  :)
