      Yes, I've seen this as well and I figured it out from the spec.

      You'll see that for fo:list-item (6.8.3) the initial property for
      relative-align= (7.12.6) is "before", but needs to be set to "baseline" for
      it to appear properly.

      AntennaHouse respects the setting of the property value and the RenderX
      folks told me they have it on their to-do list from a report I made
      earlier, it just isn't yet to-done.

      I hope this helps.
