That would explain it.

However, this behaviour is only seen within lists; ordinary


formats "correctly" without leading spaces.  Why?  Many people and tools
indent their SGML sources.  Is this wrong?

Btw., I seem to be getting better results with this patch:

 (mode listitem-content-mode

This would presume that:

a) (process-node-list (children (current-node))) is sufficiently
   equivalent to (process-children).  I don't know.

b) There isn't someone who actually wants the spaces.
