Good point Lois.  I have enough trouble getting the message across as it
is.  People always tend to the path of least resistance and adding picky
little usability issues just builds a wall.

As a developer, I'm pretty sick of having to put delimiters between
elements that software should recognise as being independent -
especially when the situation demands that I then style them into

[Note: I now do all menus as <ul></ul>].
