wp_list_categories adds a </p> tag

when you create a categories list like this


and your first category has children you get a </p> tag behind the counter for this first category link and this gives a ugly blank line in your list

this is a examle from our website

<li class="cat-item cat-item-80"><a href="http://www.klf.de/home/?cat=80" title="View all posts filed under Articles" class="liinternal">Articles</a> (33)</p> 
<ul class='children'>

Just tested this and cannot duplicate. No ending p tag is added.

It could be that my description has not enough information.

we have a two level category stucture no post is in the first level, all post are in the second level.

When we use wp_list_categories('title_li=&show_count=1');

we get a list where the first link has a <p> tag, this link is a link to a category in the first level with childs (in the scond level) no other link in the list in the first or second level have a <p> tag

when we add a category which is sorted before this category with the <p> tag, and we add a post to this new category so a new link to this category will appear in the list, and then no more <p> will be in the list

this is our current fix, but this is not a good solution
