Hi Lincoln,

Here's a possible solution, using recursion: 

<xsl:template match="w:p">
        <xsl:when test="w:pPr/w:listPr">
            <xsl:if test="not(preceding-sibling::w:p[1]/w:pPr/w:listPr)">
                <xsl:apply-templates select="w:r/w:t" mode="list-begin"/>
        <xsl:when test="w:pPr/w:pStyle/@w:val='Heading5'">
            <h2><xsl:value-of select="w:r/w:t"/></h2>
            <p><xsl:value-of select="w:r/w:t"/></p>

<xsl:template match="w:t" mode="list-begin">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="list-item-recursive"/>

<xsl:template match="w:t" mode="list-item-recursive">
    <li><xsl:value-of select="."/></li>
    <xsl:variable name="next" select="../../following-sibling::w:p[1]"/>
    <xsl:if test="$next/w:pPr/w:listPr">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="$next/w:r/w:t" mode="list-item-recursive"/>

I hope this can clear up the mud? :)
