Hi Carsten,

During the weekend, I found and fixed two bugs that exist in
HTML/DocBook exporters (see the following descriptions).  I am attaching
a patch for the fixes at the end of this email.

1. Bug One: two consecutive lists with different list types at the same
   level are exported as *one* list.  For example, the following two
   lists

   1. Ordered List Item 1
   2. Ordered List Item 2

   - Itemized List Item 1
   - Itemized List Item 2
   - Itemized List Item 3

   are exported as one ordered list in HTML (see below, similar problem
   also exist in DocBook).

   : <ol>
   : <li>
   : Ordered List Item 1
   : </li>
   : <li>
   : Ordered List Item 2
   : 
   : </li>
   : <li>
   : Itemized List Item 1
   : </li>
   : <li>
   : Itemized List Item 2
   : </li>
   : <li>
   : Itemized List Item 3
   : 
   : </li>
   : </ol>

2. Bug Two: a paragraph *immediately* after a block like quote, verse,
   centered block, example, etc. is not wrapped into paragraph tags
   (<p>...</p> in HTML or <para>...</para> in DocBook).  While it is not
   a big deal for HTML exporter, this bug makes exported DocBook XML
   document invalid.

   The following lines can reproduce this bug:

   : Code line one
   : Code line two
   This is a paragraph immediately after the above code block without an
   empty line before it, and it is NOT wrapped in a paragraph (<p> in
   HTML or <para> in DocBook) in exported format.

Please let me know if you see any problems in the fix.

Thanks,
Baoqiu

This is, actually, not a bug but on purpose.
List boundaries are set by indentation, and the
list type is set by the first item.  I prefer to keep it that way.
In the same way, the actual numbers in an ordered list are ignored
and the list is renumbered on export.

I would like to fix this bug, and if you send me a patch just
for this, I'd be happy to apply it.

Thanks for the explanation, Carsten!  This makes perfect sense to me.
No wonder I found the same "problem" in function
`org-beginning-of-item-list'. :-)

If a lot of people like to mix different list types together in the way
I showed above, I would prefer that Org mode has finer support for this.
But for now, I think we should keep the existing way.

OK.  I am attaching the new patch at the end.

mixing lists is easy to do. Just use Alt + <left/right> to
decrease/increase the item's indentation.

I think a way to terminate list is quite important, particularly when
embedding list inside an article. I always found it difficult to start a
new paragrah after a list because when you type TAB on the first line of
the new paragraph it indents it to the level that shows it is part of
the last list item.

How about making double blank line do that?

Increasing the indentation of the 2nd list (itemized list) makes it part
of item 2 of the ordered list, doesn't it?  So, instead of having two
lists at the same level, we will end up having only one list -- the
ordered list.

If these two lists are not nested in another outer, higher level list,
decreasing the indentation of 2nd list would work, but it won't look
very good.

I don't have the habit of hitting TAB to start a new paragraph, so I
don't have this problem. :-)  Nevertheless, having an option to disable
indentation based on a list two-blank line above seems useful.

Hi Baoqiu,

I really don't see why.  Under what circumstances would you
want to mix list types like this, without at least on little
transition sentence between the lists?  I cannot remember any
occasion when I would have wanted this to be possible.

Thanks, in particular also for preparing the patch
against the new file org-html.el.  I have applied
it.

This may be something that occasionally happens to me: I sometimes mix
list types (at the same indentation level) when I take *very* quick
notes during brainstorming discussions or when watching Google Tech
Talks.  There is no time to add a little transition sentence between the
lists.

I was surprised once or twice when two different lists were merged into
one after I hit M-<RET> at the end of one item in the second list.

Don't know if other people feel this little inconvenience too.  If there
is no much demand, there is no point to support this feature.

Thanks for applying the patch, and for restructuring the exporter code!

I can't resist a challenge like that!

I often write quick lists summarising the advantages and disadvantages
of a proposed solution to a problem, eg:

 + It is faster
 - It is more expensive
 + It uses less memory
 - It is a horrible colour

But I don't think it is worth trying to support something like this.

I see how this can happen during taking notes.
However, I still think that the current behavior is the right one,
and I think that changing things already during a M-RET is better
than waiting for publishing to merge them silently.

This is a good application, I use


- + It is faster
- - It is more expensive
- + It uses less memory
- - It is a horrible colour
