Is there a conflict between these things? It seems that the <ul> and 
<ol> elements allow flow content.
On the one hand, that seems to allow many kinds of descendants, such as 
child lists. However, the content model says that only <li> children are 

What about nested lists, like this?

I would think that's allowed. So, what kinds of content are allowed 
inside of <ol> and <ul>?
