Please help me correct our CSS code to indent the bullets.

This is how the list looks:

* item one

* item two

This is how it should look (the bullets line up, they are not multilevel):

   * item one.

   * item two.

This is our CSS code. :

}

.bulletname}

        list-style-type: outside disc;

        margin-top: 2px;

        margin-bottom: 4px;

        margin-left: 18px;

        font-size: 10pt;

       font-family: arial;

A friend indented them in HTML with div. But does div go in css, which has no <ul> tag?

Thank you!

Take a look at lists on my site. I believe it is covered there.

Thanks, Peter. I'm following your steps carefully, but the step that creates a class (.name) isn't working for me.

  1. In the Style Editor, under List, I created     bullet_numlist
  2. I chose bullets, font, indents, spacing (style isn't selectable).
  3. I  clicked Apply and ok.
  4. In my text, I selected the text to bullet and clicked the style dropdown. No .bullet_numlist is available to select.

For example my dropdown shows other styles that have a dot before the name:

.bullet_para

but, no .bullet_numlist

I tried saving, regenerating, restarting RH.

Thank you

Peter, I can edit a current .name bullet in RH style editor. But none of the settings seem to indent the bullet set. Which setting does that?

Jeff, yes - but it didn't answer how to fix my css code,  which doesn't have a <ul> format. What do I do with what I have?

What we had worked briefly, but no longer works. We did identify the issue accurately, which is better than my description, and I believe we were looking at it from the wrong angle..

"Nest a ul under an ol" (bullets under numbers.) It may be simply a multilevel method. I can either leave out those bullets or work on multilevel options.

Thank you all for your time and assistance. I really appreciate it and will get back here if needed.
