Putting a link around almost any element is now valid and will pass the validator.
We now descend to "Who am I gonna believe: you or my lyin' eyes?" Don't know about the rest of youse, but when I say "the validator" I mean
A snippet with divs inside an <a href> validates as neither HTML 4.01 nor XHTML 1.0 (the two available options in "HTML fragment" mode). It does validate in HTML 5 if you wrap it in the appropriate tags to make a complete document-- but 5 isn't simply a looser version of 4. It's got a whole different set of rules. And it's clearly labeled "tentative" and "experimental".
