Adds support to the HTML Processor for the following elements, enabling the handling of list elements in HTML:

  • UL, OL, LI
  • DT, DL, DD

Previously, the HTML Processor would bail when encountering any of these tags. Now it will properly handle them and their complicated rules.

HTML API: Add support for list elements.

Adds support for the following HTML elements to the HTML Processor:

  • LI, OL, UL.
  • DD, DL, DT.

Previously, these elements were not supported and the HTML Processor would bail when encountering them.
With this patch it will proceed to parse an HTML document when encountering those tags as long as other normal conditions don't cause it to bail (such as complicated format reconstruction).

Props audrasjb, jonsurrell, bernhard-reiter.
Fixes #60215.
