Mark, you are right.. here is a paste from the sqlplus screen:

SQL> declare
  2
  3 begin
  4
  5 declare
  6
  7 begin
  8
  9 end;
 10
 11 end;
 12 /

        end;
        *

ERROR at line 9:
ORA-06550: line 9, column 2:
PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "END" when expecting one of the following: begin case declare exit for goto if loop mod null pragma raise return select update while with <an identifier> <a double-quoted delimited-identifier> <a bind variable> << close current delete fetch lock insert open rollback savepoint set sql execute commit forall merge <a single-quoted SQL string> pipe

SQL> Thanks,
Mourad
