I guess so: using dt/dd you'd get

     xxxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxx
     xxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxx


            xxxxxxxxxxxxx x xxxxxxxxxxx
            xxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx

instead of having the bullet inlined...

While we're at it, did we ever get round to defining a HTML3 attrib for LI


so that OL's can start numbering lists at a specific value instead of 1 ?
I can't find a reference to it anywhere
