Hi, as a web developer I’ve been writing html for years, and html is very good, except for one case which always makes me think that there is something missing: the list inside a paragraph.

Imagine you want to say:

I went shopping today, I bought 4 things:  item1, item2, item3, item4.

Now if I ask you how many paragraphs is that, you would say one, wouldn’t you.
Why is it then that in html, if you want to have a visually formatted list (because you’re an organised person) you need to write 2 paragraphs to do that?

That case always drives me crazy.

We need a list inside a paragraph.

There are so many nuances for abbr, strong, etc…, it’s ridiculous that this problem hasn’t been solved yet (or correct me if I’m wrong).
