From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.6+)

When creating a list, then formatting the text, if you place an <HR>, the list
does not function as normal.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch composer.
2. Click on the numbered list icon in the toolbar.
3. Create 3 list items (type text, press enter, text, enter, text, enter).
4. Click on Edit, then Select All, then click on the 'Bold' icon in the toolbar
(or italic or underline)
5. Unselect the highlighted text, then insert a horizontal line.
6. Press enter repeatedly.

Actual Results:  Each time enter is pressed, a new line in the list is created.

Expected Results:  Normally, after the second time enter is pressed, the list is
discontinued, and the caret is placed at the beginning of a brand new line. 
This normal behavior does happen, if the bold is not present.

I have also noticed that, when you are far down on the list, after pressing
enter a number of times (say on the 8th line), if you press backspace once, the
caret moves to the seventh line.  Then, after pressing the backspace key again,
the 8th line disappears, and the caret jumps to the 3rd line.

I hope i have conveyed this correctly, this has seemed to be difficult to describe.

Update: the <HR> is not necessary.  Only the bold is required.
Summary: Improper list properties when text has been formatted and <HR> present → Improper list properties when text has been formatted

note to self: the cause here is that the test for emptiness of a list item is
not  being agressive enough.  the li in question contains <b><br><b/>, which
should count as empty.  Once I fix that, I should then modify the splitting code
to not generate the "bold break" to start with, and instead split the br outside
of the b.

The days of having a half dozen milestones out in front of us to divide bugs 
between seem to be gone, though I dont know why.  Lumping everything together as 
far out as I can.  I'll pull back things that I am working on as I go.
