<disp-quote> is not permitted as a direct child of <list-item>. We have an article where the author has provided a series of quotes as a numbered list. Each quote is a separate list item, and each list item comprises only the quote and its attribution. Currently in JATS this has to be tagged as follows:



 



          <list list-type="order">

            <list-item>

                <p><disp-quote><p>The first list item.</p><attrib>The author</attrib></disp-quote></p>

            </list-item>



            <list-item>

                <p><disp-quote><p>The second list item.</p><attrib>The author</attrib></disp-quote></p>

            </list-item>



          </list>



This creates redundant <p> elements.

Submitter Proposed Solution

Allow <disp-quote> to be a direct child of <list-item>, for example:



          <list list-type="order">

            <list-item>

                <disp-quote><p>The first list item.</p><attrib>The author</attrib></disp-quote>

            </list-item>



            <list-item>

                <disp-quote><p>The second list item.</p><attrib>The author</attrib></disp-quote>

            </list-item>



          </list>
