[resolved] Bulleted List from Word (8 posts)

    I pasted a document from Word into WordPress using the "MS Word Paste" feature.

    The bulleted list looks like this in the visual editor (except indented and with bullets in front of the lines):

    § effectively deal with it, and
    § effectively focus attention on it.

    The code looks like this:

    <ul>
    <li>§ effectively deal with it, and</li>
    <li>§ effectively focus attention on it.</li>
    </ul>

    The blog page looks like this (with indents):

    § effectively deal with it, and
    § effectively focus attention on it.

    What do I need to do to get the § out of there, and the bullets to appear in the blog page?

    Any help with this would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Add a class to your <ul> such as <ul class="postlist"> and then in your css add the following:

    .postlist {list-style-type: disc; }

    Oh and manually remove the § from your list entries.

    Thanks for the input.

    Page code now has this (both in code window and page source):

    <ul class="postlist">
    	<li>effectively deal with it, and</li>
    	<li>effectively focus attention on it.</li>
    </ul>

    rtl.css and style.css have (checked twice):

    .postlist {list-style-type: disc; }

    However, web page appears the same (though without the §)

    I put a test page up: http://blog.actionmap.com/test/
