    ...and is that where the devil my other manure fork went?

    I can flip images in my head because I was taught to do it, but did you know most people can't?  But letter/number sequences scramble on me and I miss spaces. Frustrating. Still I persevere.

    what does the li thing do when it has brackets and no end / tag?  I'm afraid to even start the thing and nuke my comment.

      still do not behave the way I would expect.

      In my boilerplate code I use <ul><li></li></ul> constructs because the old Diary Editor wouldn't support the Autoformat shortcuts * , 1. , etc. at all.

      Even now you'll see that the Autoformat Lists have an extra <br>eak at the end of each element.

      Mixing the two gives me exactly the same kind of errors and sometimes I can fix them and other times- not so much.

      Tomorrow for hah hahs I'm going to try redoing them all in <li></li> and see if I can get my 'New Users Last Week' thing working.

        ....which frequently left me feeling schitzoid because I could not for the life of me figure out just where the heck the results were coming from when I'd go to proofread a diary, which looks rather like a bunch of gibbledee- gook to me anyway.  Then it became demonically possessed with bizarre spaces, bolding, and italics I wasn't even attempting to create. Diety help you if you put a punctuation mark anywhere near one of those *****ing ><things.</p>
