Description Collegepark 2017-08-23 12:26:38 UTC
According to Microsoft documentation the bullet list's items should have description subtags (https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/dotnet/csharp/programming-guide/xmldoc/list)

    /// <list type="bullet">
    /// <item>
    /// <description>Item 1.</description>
    /// </item>
    /// <item>
    /// <description>Item 2.</description>
    /// </item>
    /// </list>

In this case mdoc will only create empty XML items and HTML will only show the bullets but no text.
If I replace <description> with <term> it works, but this is not how it is supposed to be.
