My nested list isn't nesting

My day to ask questions, apparently. I built a nested list in the HTML editor. I've checked, rechecked, and rechecked the code. It should be working correctly. Does Wizzley support nested lists?

Edited to add code:

<ul style="list-style-position: inside;">
<li>Some text referencing nested list to follow<br />
<ul style="list-style-position: inside;">
<li>Some text</li>
<li>Some text</li>
<li>Some text</li>
</ul>
</li>
<li>Some non-nested bullet text</li>
<li>Some non-nested bullet text</li>
<li>Some non-nested bullet text</li>
</ul>

Works for me.

I just pasted your code sample into a text module and got a nicely indented list. Did you disable the editor?

I know there are instructions somewhere for disabling the editor, but I hadn't planned on disabling it so don't remember them. I am able o use the editor just fine. It would not be functional if I had inadvertently disabled it, would it?

Edit:

Aha! I just pasted my sample code back in and, while it does not nest either, the original code below it nests now. Apparently, it is not nesting because it is wrapping around an image. Any ideas how to fix?

There's a link inside the text editor on the right hand side which disables the tinyMCE.

Your list probably got messed up by the image, so I just added a break to clear the image first. It's nesting again now.

Thank you for your timely responses. I appreciate them. Thanks, too, for pointing out that enable/disable button. I've been using the little HTML button that opens a new window. This is much more efficient.

I'm afraid I'm going to sound really dumb now.

Are you suggesting I add <br /> enough times to push the list below the image? Or are you suggesting something else that I didn't quite get? I have found that creating white space with <br /> rarely renders consistently in different browsers and on different computers.

If the only way to get the list to nest is to move it away from image, I may need to change the image or post the list in a different way.

Edit: Doh! I moved the image to the other side. Problem solved.

Hmm, lists are in general very problematic beside images. Nested lists even more so. That's an inconvenience caused by the different behavior of the different browsers: Chrome, Firefox, IE, etc. There's not much we can do for, unfortunately. Undecided

Thank you, Simon. That is good to know. The wannabe geek in me wants to dash out and find out why, but I'm sure braver hearts than I have tried to understand it, so I'll stick with building content and try to remember to avoid lists wrapping around images.
