In the absence of specific styling information, the inline list elements
would have exactly the same effect as span, thus the default
presentation of 

<p><il><label>My favorite colors</label> are <ili>green</ili> and

would be exactly the same as:

<p>My favorite colors are green and blue.</p>


<p>My favorite colors are <span class="color">green</span>
and <span class="color">blue</span>.</p>

It's an inline element with no particular styling information at
all associated with it.  It's only purpose is to indicate that here
is a list of items embedded inside inline text content.

The embedded list is equivalent to the list:
<label>My favorite colors</label>
but in the absence of styling info or an interface used by a
user agent to extract embedded lists it wouldn't be
displayed that way.
