I guess so: using dt/dd you'd get
xxxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxx
xxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxx x xxxxxxxxxxx
instead of having the bullet inlined...
While we're at it, did we ever get round to defining a HTML3 attrib for LI
NEWVAL NUMBER #IMPLIED
so that OL's can start numbering lists at a specific value instead of 1 ?
I can't find a reference to it anywhere
