    Bulleted List formatting ain't all that great

    I have run into a display issue with bulleted lists in FP. In the WYSIWYG editor, the bulleted lists line up all nice and neat, no problem at all. But then preview it, or view it in a live browser (Netscape and IE), and the first line looks ok - but any additional lines that wrap are not indented as far as the first line.

    What's up with that? Have I got something screwy in my style sheet? I don't know where to start looking.

    Re: Bulleted List formatting ain't all that great

    Well, phooey, I looked at the attachment after I posted it and without the picture bullets the text lines up oh-so-nicely. Which begets the question:

    Why?

    Sure, I can post a sample....using a Microsoft theme, so if you need the CSS file too, please let me know (at least, I think that's what it's using, that's not real clear).

    Re: Bulleted List formatting ain't all that great

    Okay - I think your description helps. In HTML a bulleted list is indented by a set amount, (and I believe the amount is set by the browser). When you add a larger picture (perhaps larger than the browser understands) this is what is messing up the wrap.
    I think there are a couple of ways to deal with this.
    Resize the bullet so that it is smaller.
    or
    Perhaps there is a css setting that will allow for a further indentation in subsequent lines (I don't know if there is).

    Re: Bulleted List formatting ain't all that great

    Excellent information!! Thanks for your help. I believe there is a way to use CSS to set indents - seems like I saw that in the code from a word-generated HTML doc.

    Again, thanks much.
