That one way is correct does not preclude another from _also_ being
correct. In particular, in this case, I feel uncomfortable with the use of
'ol' for this. I'm not really sure why yet, but I'm guessing it has
something to do with the fact that there is more list items, and more data
per list item, then I would normally consider to be a list.

Truth be told, I'm leaning in the direction of a 'table', but I worry that
will have performance implications.
