Technical details

This template uses the .hlist CSS class defined in the TemplateStyles to generate horizontal lists. It causes ordinary HTML list items to be displayed inline (horizontally), where they would normally display as block elements (vertically). The class also generates the interpuncts between list items and parentheses around nested lists.
