Please note that this is another example of previous inconsistency. It
has been bullets when using yelp for a long time. (But I agree that
numbers is better in a step-by-step list.)

While that is true, I suppose it has never been the intention to use
different list style types in the HTML version compared to the yelp

  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:
