Exactly. A simple bulleted list (or simple numbered list that starts with "1") isn't usually
a problem. It's when people think they can churn out a fancy "outline" mixing letters and numbers (or starting from anything other than 1), that the problems arise.
I don't use them (lists) at all, myself, but that's just a personal decision. Mainly because I don't see the benefit (from a hand-coding standpoint) of using list elements for presenting static data.
