You are including the | character outside of the <li></li> tags, which is not valid. <ul> can only contain <li></li> nodes, it can't contain text nodes.

I pasted your code in at the w3.org validator (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator) and it said that it was valid. What is telling you that it's invalid?
