Max, you traitor:) The mathml version of the stylesheet has had this
fixed for a long time. (since mathml 1.1)


The problem is with the stylesheet. (Actually HTML's content model for p
is wrong, something (finally) addressed in XHTML2) Lists should
logically be part of a paragraph, since logically they may be part of a
sentence.

See for example this posting on this list
