Description

The listitem element is a wrapper around an item in a list. In an itemizedlist or an orderedlist, the listitem surrounds the entire list item. In a variablelist, listitem surrounds the “definition” part of the list item.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block. List items usually generate the appropriate mark (a number or bullet) and appear indented, next to the mark. In a variablelist, the presentation may be influenced by the length of the term or terms that precede the list item and by attributes on the list itself.
