This is a screenshot of my sandbox page. The left part of the table shows the incorrect formatting in wikitext, and the correct formatting in HTML. At the bottom is a screenshot from IE. (765.03 KB, image/gif)

Description Karl Dickman 2006-05-04 19:17:01 UTC
I don't have a screenshot to show what I'm talking about, because Microsoft
seems to be corrupting my GIFS, so the description will have to be verbal for now.

As everyone knows, in wikitext you use one asterisk (*) to do a first-order
bullet, and two (**) to do a second-order bullet.  However, MediaWiki seems to
be having some rendering problems (at least in FireFox; IE doesn't seem to be
affected).  Specifically, if you begin a bulleted list with a second-order
bullet, then knock it up to first-order, it will insert both a first and second
order bullet at the beginning of the line.  (See the table at the bottom of my
sandbox page.)  This is definitely a wiki problem, because entering the text
using the equivalent HTML works perfectly.

Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-05-04 19:30:33 UTC
<ul> is not allowed inside <ul>, to be valid HTML it must be in a 
<li>. Please format your bullet lists in the correct order.
Comment 3 Karl Dickman 2006-05-04 20:14:37 UTC
My issue is NOT with html formatting, my issue is with wiki formatting.  I used
the html example to demonstrate that the problem was sever-side, not client-side.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-05-04 20:24:19 UTC
It produces valid HTML code; it's just that what you want isn't 
available in valid HTML. Instead, construct properly ordered 
lists that will look attractive.

Please see

The identation of ':*' differs from '**' but this is a CSS issue.
