As many of you know, we are using htmldoc to go from a single-file
HTML file into postscript/pdf. The extra <p> tags embedded in the
HTML list elements are causing this behavior. Pal Domokos
<firstname.lastname@example.org> pointed this out sometime ago, but I have
not done anything to fix this.
Short of filtering the HTML file prior to passing it to htmldoc,
can anything come up with another way to handle this?

We can do that. w3m.org...I'll give it a shot.
