Remove the first space, remove the '.' that are alone on their line,
add a blank line before enumeration (this last point seems the more
annoying to me: it can be difficult to automatically find where to
insert a blank line).

link quality between the base station and the associated hosts</li>

<p>For the Apple AirPort Extreme base stations only:</p>

<li>airport2-config: base station configurator</li>
<li>airport2-portinspector: port maps monitor</li>
<li>airport2-ipinspector: WAN interface monitoring utility</li>

<p>For all:</p>
