"COMPACT" is not a member of a group specified for any attribute

Hello there,

on the Debian BTS - mail server reference card[0] the following markup
is used[1]:

| <h2>Synopsis of bug submission and followup addresses</h2>
| <ul compact>
|   <li><var>nnn</var>[ <code>-submit</code> | ]
|   <li><var>nnn</var><code>-maintonly</code>
|   <li><var>nnn</var><code>-quiet</code>
|   <li><var>nnn</var><code>-forwarded</code>
|   <li><var>nnn</var><code>-request</code>
|   <li><var>nnn</var><code>-submitter</code>
|   <li><var>nnn</var><code>-done</code>
|   <li><var>nnn</var><code>-close</code>
|   <li><var>nnn</var><code>-subscribe</code>
| </ul>

AFAIK this attribute "compact" wasn't ever widely supported by the
browsers, and furthermore it's not Valid HTML 4.01 Strict and thus the
page doesn't validate[2].

It's been there ever since this page exists, but as long as nobody
vetoes I'll simpy remove it in the next days. Alternatively it could
be replaced by e.g. 'style="letter-spacing:whatever"', but I see no
reason why this synopsis needs to be listed compactly ...
