Yes, but that doesn't alter the fact that it is invalid HTML and that 
the behaviour isn't defined in any standard. HTML 2.0 defines ul as:

<!ELEMENT (OL|UL) - -  (LI)+>

I.e. an UL element must only contain one or more LI elements. If that is 
not the case the client may do whatever it wants; e.g. print out the 
contents as best as I can, show dacing rodents or dump core.
