Message Hi Jason,

Thanks for your help. As usual I wasn't thining straight yesterday.
This was the last issue in a long list I've been working on in my spare

Anyway -- I fixed the HTML and now it works fine.

> <li><a href="#" class="doc"></a><a
> href="#">Implementation documentation</a​></li>
> <li><a href="#" class="doc"></a><a href="#">User guide</a></li>
> <li><a href="#" class="doc"></a><a href="#">Test suite</a>
> <ul>
> <li><a href="#">Test case format</a></li>
> <li><a href="#">Test cases</a></li>
> </ul>
> </li>
> </ol>
> </li>
