Just throwing this out there as an alternate way to code this. In my
example, the class "picture" would have the same indent as the li style in
your CSS to make it line up.

The disadvantage (obviously) is that you are essentially manually numbering
the procedure by using the ol start="N" method. In my situation, when I used
this code, it was a procedure that had not changed in many years so
confidence was high that I could use this code and not have an issue and
also very early in my HTML coding days.

<ol>
<li> Begin with the otherwise blah blah</li>
<li> Next click on the item in this picture</li>
</ol>
<p class="picture"> [Picture]</p>
<ol start="2">
<li> You will now get this result</li>
</ol>
<p class="picture"> [Picture]</p>
<ol start="3">
<li> then you click something else.</li>
<li> Now we are done. </li>
</ol>

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.
