Nested lists in XHTML

Note: A common mistake in nested lists, is to forget that the inside list must be within a li element, like this:

<ul>
<li>Coffee</li>
<li>Tea
<ul>
<li>Black tea</li>
<li>Green tea</li>
</ul>
<li>Milk</li>
</ul>

This is correct:

<ul>
<li>Coffee</li>
<li>Tea
<ul>
<li>Black tea</li>
<li>Green tea</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>Milk</li>
</ul>

Notice that we have inserted a </li> tag after the </ul> tagin the “correct” code example.
