it now fully validates \o/
I ended up with a somewhat ugly hack to stop it complaining about an 
empty <ul> tag by inserting an invisble <li> tag to cover the instances 
where there are no items in the secondary menu (all the time at the 
moment). Fixing it neatly would have involved changing a core wordpress 
function that I didn't feel like changing.
I also fixed the truncated text which was due to a fixed width item 
around the top menu that I missed when converting the design from fixed 
width to fluid width and on some browsers the menu font pushed the width 
over the 650px allocated for that section. Now it can flow across as 
much screen as you have, as the web was meant to be, until broken by the 
960gs fad.
