in reply to RFC: Monastery Markup Introduction

Perhaps this goes beyond "introduction", but I sometimes find it useful to put <p> marks inside <li> marks if the list items are full sentences that might span lines. For example:

<ul> <li><p>The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog and then jumped ba +ck again once or twice, which really annoyed the dog.</p></li> <li><p>Another paragraph of long text which has no point but to show o +ff how list paragraphs look when composed of a long sentence that mig +ht span several lines on the screen and having a little extra white s +pace would be a kindness</p></li> </ul>

Result:

  • The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog and then jumped back again once or twice, which really annoyed the dog.

  • Another paragraph of long text which has no point but to show off how list paragraphs look when composed of a long sentence that might span several lines on the screen and having a little extra white space would be a kindness
