It actually too on the order of 8 hours to get right for all the edge cases I
could come up with. The code in question was designed back in the days of HTML
3.2 when closing elements was optional and relied heavily on not needing to
close either the <li> or <ul> elements. :-(

Yes, thanks Jan! We didn't even have a test case for this part of the code so
without your report we probably wouldn't have found this problem for ages!
