I've run into that recently with Dreamweaver and SharePoint Designer.

Apparently, the accepted format is not the format I am trying to make or intend to use.

You have something like this or intend to have this:

1. Begin with the otherwise blah blah
2. Next click on the item in this picture
[Picture]
3. You will now get this result
[Picture]
4. Then you click something else.
5. Now we are done.

What you get is this:

1. Begin with the otherwise blah blah
2. Next click on the item in this picture
[Picture]
1. You will now get this result
[Picture]
1. Then you click something else.
2. Now we are done.


Where to solve this is in the HTML code, if you have access.


This is what you get. Notice the ordered list breaks before the paragraph tag. This resets the numbering sequence.
<ol>
<li> Begin with the otherwise blah blah</li>
<li> Next click on the item in this picture </li>
</ol>
<p> [Picture]</p>
<ol>
<li> You will now get this result </li>
</ol>
<p> [Picture]</p>
<ol>
<li> then you click something else.</li>
<li> Now we are done. </li>
</ol>


This is what you want. You need to go in and manually type in the HTML to get it this way.
<ol>
<li> Begin with the otherwise blah blah</li>
<li> Next click on the item in this picture
<p> [Picture]</p>
</li>
<li> You will now get this result
<p> [Picture]</p>
</li>
<li> then you click something else.</li>
<li> Now we are done. </li>
</ol>

Apparently nesting the paragraphs inside the line item is not considered good code, however, it is what gets your picture under the right numbering sequence and it gets it indented correctly with the text in the list.

Subject: FM-> HTML graphics conversion problem


I'm converting FM source to HTML, and everything is going remarkably well
[!] except for one thing: graphics within list-type items. A graphic in the
middle of body text is no problem, but with ordered and unordered lists and
table text, the line breaks after the graphic and the following text loses
its formatting.

Any idea what's happening here?

thanks,
Carol
