I suspect you're indenting your list. The top list items' asterisks
have to be the first character on the line. Quickbook interprets
indented text as a code block.

Currently you can't use block markup inside a table so you either have
to use escaped boostbook markup or a block template (which can contain
a list and be expanded in a table, it's an awkward way to do things
