||contains any sequence of items organized as a list.
||(In addition to global attributes
and those inherited from lists)
||describes the form of the list.
||Suggested values include:
||list items are numbered or lettered.
||list items are marked with a
bullet or other typographic device.
||list items are not numbered or bulleted.
||each list item glosses some term or
concept, which is given by a label element preceding
the list item.
The formal syntax of the element declarations allows
<label> tags to be omitted from lists tagged <list
type="gloss">; this is however a semantic error.
<item>a candlestick maker, with
<item>rings on his fingers</item>
<item>bells on his toes</item>
The following example treats the short numbered clauses of
Anglo-Saxon legal codes as lists of items. The text is from an
ordinance of King Athelstan (924–939):
<div1 type="section"><head>Athelstan's Ordinance</head>
<item n="1">Concerning thieves. First, that no thief is to be
spared who is caught with the stolen goods, [if he is] over
twelve years and [if the value of the goods is] over eightpence.
<item n="1.1">And if anyone does spare one, he is to pay for the
thief with his wergild — and the thief is to be no nearer a
settlement on that account — or to clear himself by an oath of
<item n="1.2">If, however, he [the thief] wishes to defend himself
or to escape, he is not to be spared [whether younger or older
<item n="1.3">If a thief is put into prison, he is to be in prison
40 days, and he may then be redeemed with 120 shillings; and the
kindred are to stand surety for him that he will desist for ever.</item>
<item n="1.4">And if he steals after that, they are to pay for him
with his wergild, or to bring him back there.</item>
<item n="1.5">And if he steals after that, they are to pay
for him with his wergild, whether to the king or to him
to whom it rightly belongs; and everyone of those who
supported him is to pay 120 shillings to the king as a fine.</item>
<item n="2">Concerning lordless men. And we pronounced about these
lordless men, from whom no justice can be obtained, that one
should order their kindred to fetch back such a person to justice
and to find him a lord in public meeting.
<item n="2.1">And if they then will not, or cannot, produce him on
that appointed day, he is then to be a fugitive afterwards, and
he who encounters him is to strike him down as a thief.</item>
<item n="2.2">And he who harbours him after that, is to pay for him
with his wergild or to clear himself by an oath of that amount.</item>
<item n="3">Concerning the refusal of justice. The lord who
refuses justice and upholds his guilty man, so that the king is
appealed to, is to repay the value of the goods and 120 shillings
to the king; and he who appeals to the king before he demands
justice as often as he ought, is to pay the same fine as the
other would have done, if he had refused him justice.
<item n="3.1">And the lord who is an accessory to a theft by his
slave, and it becomes known about him, is to forfeit the slave
and be liable to his wergild on the first occasionp if he does it
more often, he is to be liable to pay all that he owns.</item>
<item n="3.2">And likewise any of the king's treasurers or of our
reeves, who has been an accessory of thieves who have committed
theft, is to liable to the same.</item>
<item n="4">Concerning treachery to a lord. And we have pronounced
concerning treachery to a lord, that he [who is accused] is to
forfeit his life if he cannot deny it or is afterwards convicted
at the three-fold ordeal.</item>
Note that nested lists have been used so the tagging mirrors the
structure indicated by the two-level numbering of the clauses.
The clauses could have been treated as a one-level list with
irregular numbering, if desired.
