Advice taken!  Thanks!

OK.  I've been a bit mislead by the fact that if I explicitly write:

   - [ ] petit :: chaperon

both the "[ ]" and the "petit" word get highlighted.  If we may not mix
plain lists and descriptive lists, and I happen to write lines like
above, maybe the "petit" word should lose its highlighting?  Org mode
helps me a bit more, say, if I replace "-" by "*" above, none of "[ ]"
or "petit" are highlighted, so I immediately see I am doing something
