[Bug 1649554] Re: Default Mallard <list> element translated incorrectly

Yes, all other uses should be checked.

I also started looking back through the doc team mail archives for
related discussions, but only got to 2004 before giving up due to a high
number of html e-mails that often trigger the "list" search.

@Chris: Note that it might not always be a bug if the html display
differs from the Mallard specification. The whole purpose of the
ubuntu.xsl file is to provide overrides to the defaults, in addition to
adding some functionality.

  Default Mallard <list> element translated incorrectly

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  When "type" is not specified in a Mallard <list> element the Mallard
  spec says it should display as a bulleted (unordered) list. This is
  true when the .page file is displayed using yelp but not when the
  .page file is translated into HTML (where you get a numbered list).
  This is a bug. The HTML should be displayed as specified by the
  Mallard spec.

  Here's an example <list> element without "type" specified.


  Here's the link to the relevant page of the Mallard spec:
