My fault - I tested it with xhtml transitional doctype - it passes, with 
strict it fails.

Wrapping the text within the noscript in <p></p> allows it to validate, 
probably because these:

address, blockquote, del, div, dl, fieldset, form, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, 
hr, ins, noscript, ol, p, pre, script, table, ul

are the only valid children of noscript in xhtml strict.

(there's no <a> in that list)
