'AboutScreen' html text not displaying list items correctly

I am using an HTML editor to produce an an 'About this app' text file to paste into the AboutScreen box. I find that the expected line spacing is not observed, especially with ordered or unordered list items, which are widely spaced out leaving much space between them. Is this problem solvable? HTML is pretty standard after all.

Show the raw input and the output

an example:

<br><h4>An unordered HTML list</h4><li>Coffee</li><li>Tea</li><li>Milk</li>


A workaround....

<br><h4>A workaround</h4>&bull Coffee<br>&bull Tea<br>&bull Milk
