	Unordered list in XML:

		<li>An Item</li>
		<li>Another Item</li>

	Ordered list in XML:

		<li>Item 1</li>
		<li>Item 2</li>

	The point is an unordered list is an application level issue, not an
XML level issue - it's easy to implement one at your application level. Nay
- I would go as far as to say it's trivial.
