Doesn't the "u" in <ul> *really* mean "unnumbered", not "unordered"??
Yes, I know that the standard refers to <ul> as "unordered", but lists
introduced with <ul> *are* still ordered -- the 1st element comes first,
the 2nd comes second, etc. -- but they're just not displayed with an
explicit ordinal tag like <ol>. And in any case, a browser is certainly
*not* allowed to re-order elements of a <ul>, so I really can't agree
with calling a <ul> a "set"...
