    Description

      If you want an HTML representation of an Explanation, you might call the toHtml() method. However, the output of this method looks like the following:

      <ul>
      <li>some value = some description</li>
      <ul>
      <li>some nested value = some description</li>
      </ul>
      </ul>

      As it is illegal in HTML to nest a UL directly inside a UL, this method will always output unparseable HTML if there are nested explanations.

      What Lucene probably means to output is the following, which is valid HTML:

      <ul>
      <li>some value = some description
      <ul>
      <li>some nested value = some description</li>
      </ul>
      </li>
      </ul>
