Yeah, but the comment reads:

  <!-- slist: simple list -->
  <!-- using a <blockquote> to indent the list is very wrong, but it works -->

In fact, that code goes back a bunch of years and should probably be
rewritten so that it relies on a div w/CSS to perform the indentation.

As far as I can see, xmlspec doesn't have a blockquote element.

I suppose one could be added...
