           Summary: <li><div><p><li> no longer matches IE
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: hsivonen@iki.fi

Consider:
<!DOCTYPE html><html><head></head><body><ul><li><div><p><li></ul></body></html>

Under "A start tag whose tag name is "li"" in 'in body':
"3. If node is not in the formatting category, and is not in the phrasing
category, and is not an address or div element, then jump to the last step."

When node is 'p', step 3. breaks the loop and jumps to step 5. This is
inconsistent with IE8. The spec used to be consistent with IE here.

In addition to address and div, p should probably not break the loop.
