Entering metadata comments as HTML list

I was recently trying to enter Comments metadata for a short story anthology as an unordered list. I typed the following simple code directly in the 'HTML source' box
Code:
<ul><li>Story one</li><li>Story two</li><li>Story three</li></ul>
When I go back to 'Normal view' everything is visually OK but if I go back to the 'HTML source' box the simple code has transformed itself to this:
Code:
<ul><li style="margin-left: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-top: 12px; margin-right: 0px; text-indent: 0px">Story one</li>
<li style="margin-left: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; text-indent: 0px">Story two</li>
<li style="margin-left: 0px; margin-bottom: 12px; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; text-indent: 0px">Story three</li></ul>
I'm not sure how long this has been happening, because I haven't bought any other anthologies recently. I really don't like these unwanted style="" attributes. It clutters up the epub's OPF file and it doesn't look as neat as it used to when I view the Comments on my Kobo's book details page, either, because each line is double-spaced.

I was wondering whether there's anything at all I can do about it?

use the GUI controls to insert lists, see the markup they produce and copy that in your source HTML editing.

If I type in all te stories, one per line, then select and use the GUI control for unordered list I also get all the style="" stuff:
Code:
<ul><li style="margin-bottom: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; margin-left: 0px; text-indent: 0px">Story one</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; margin-left: 0px; text-indent: 0px">Story two</li>
<li style="margin-bottom: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; margin-left: 0px; text-indent: 0px">Story three</li></ul>
Is there no way of ending up with simple <li> tags without any attributes at all?

those are inserted by Qt's annoyingly bad rich text editor. But I suppose I can strip them out again https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibr...241d4e79e2e7b2

Yes we are well. it's a hotspot, and there have been some confirmed cases half a km down the road, but so far no closer.
