The [-...-] is only intended for inline text, it's not intended
for large multi-line contents such as (:pagelist:).  The correct 
formulation of the above would be:

   %block font-size:smaller% (:pagelist link={$FullName} fmt=simple:)

Or one could do:

   (:pagelist link={$FullName} fmt=simple:)

In a more general sense, PmWiki doesn't aim for 100% XHTML compliance
regardless of whatever arbitrary markup sequence an author might throw 
at it.  While we could probably get there, the costs in terms of 
programming complexity and runtime efficiency just aren't worth the

It'll take a while for the pages to update their various target
