I’m creating an article a week for a discourse forum, and I have noticed some odd behavior with nested bullet points when combined with number lists.
Specifically, I’ve been using html tags instead of Markdown or BBcode, becuase I find both to be fairly non-intuitive for larger posts, and have been nesting bullet point tags (ul) within numbered tags (ol). Even after closing the tags appropriately for the ordered list the unordered bullet points continue to the next level of text.
- This is level one
- Numbered Item 2 with bullets:
- line item 1
- line item 2
<ol><li>This is level one</li> <li>Numbered Item 2 with bullets:</li> <ul><li>line item 1</li> <li>line item 2</li></ul> <li>This is numbered item 3</li></ol>
As you can see, the third numbered item shows up as a bullet instead of a number. In the preview pane these come up looking great, but it doesn’t seem to translate over to the post itself. I’m not sure if this is a bug or not. Thanks for any thoughts on the matter!
