[uf-new] XOXO + hAudio = Playlist problems

Hmm, looks like the xoxo + haudio = playlist position that I've been
defending for playlists has a major problem.

Can somebody please verify or deny that the problem exists. If enough
people can verify that this is a problem I'm going to be dropping my
support for xoxo + haudio = playlist.

In fact, this is a general problem with xoxo for lists embedded in
tables. Many of the audio-info-examples use tables to list track

When you load the following HTML in Firefox, the numbering for the list
gets screwed up. So much for simple playlist markup:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    <title>XOXO for Playlists is bad...</title>


       There seems to be quite a problem when using XOXO with
       tables. The numbering of playlist entries does not work as

    <h1>XOXO Playlist embedded in a table</h1>

    <!-- This is marked up via XOXO in a table -->
    <ol class="xoxo">
      <table border="3">
       <tr><td><li>Song A</li></td><td>Download</td></tr>
       <tr><td><li>Song B</li></td><td>Download</td></tr>
       <tr><td><li>Song C</li></td><td>Download</td></tr>
       <tr><td><li>Song D</li></td><td>Download</td></tr>

    <h1>XOXO Playlist without being embedded in a table</h1>
    <!-- This is marked up via XOXO as well, but not in a table -->
    <ol class="xoxo">
       <li>Song A Download</li>
       <li>Song B Download</li>
       <li>Song C Download</li>
       <li>Song D Download</li>
