Description Zigger 2005-07-03 03:40:46 UTC
Missing list levels produce different problems in different browsers, e.g.

***3 levels
*****5 levels

Firefix 1.04 [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.8)
Gecko/20050511] has one extra bullet on the list-item line for each missing list

IE 6-SP1 [6.0.2800.1106 SP1, Q...] has extra vertical white-space, proportional
to the number of missing levels.

1. Either strip missing levels, or
2. use a "div" for each missing list level, with a CSS class to match the ul/ol
margins from the relevant stylesheet.

The supplied URL shows the problems and proposals.

See my comment on
which perfectly shows the problem.

This link does not work so I continue reporting here.

BTW, this bug is not bound to specific browsers like Gecko based or IE - there
is just some wrong code rendered which also lets Konquerer and Opera fail to
render the page right.  So the bug title should probably be renamed.
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-07-27 09:47:31 UTC
This is basically an issue of "It hurts when I do this!" "Don't do that."
If you skip levels, it has to fill them in. The result isn't very pretty, so 
you shouldn't do that if it's not what you wanted.

This bug is likely to be closed as WONTFIX.
