I don't use them (lists) at all, myself, but that's just a personal decision. Mainly because I don't see any benefit (from a hand-coding standpoint) of using list elements for presenting static data.
Thanks for clarifying. As mentioned, I've had no issues with simple lists. They work fine in ADE, fine on all the ADE readers I've tested. But for fancy stuff, no.
I think I'll continue using them where they are simple and useful. Where they aren't workable, I'll code differently.
