So what? a seperate container is not necessary.

Ok, that's easy.  I created an XHTML2 document and applied this css and 
achieved the desired effect.  I'm sure there are plenty of other way's 
to do it, this is just one.

nl { display: block; border: 2px outset black; }
nl label { margin-top: -1em; }
li { display: list-item; }
