It does need tweaking, but that sandbox page looks like a pretty good
starting point to me.

Regarding the 'List Heading' and the following list- I might take issue with
the desired outcome. The desire to couple a heading to a list could
(should?) be handled with a unique style when needed.  If that's the logical
structure I'd argue that a DL might be better markup too. Which, last time I
checked, DL markup was implemented incorrectly in PmWiki.

I don't know what the prior issues regarding a pure css approach are, but I
have a hard time believing that they are insurmountable.
