Bulleted list carriage return problem

The following code produces an unwanted carriage return (an extra blank line) between the "This is..." line and the first item in the list. How can this be solved?

This is a list:
<ul>
<li>Item #1
<li>Item #2
</ul>

Like this:

This is a list:

     Item #1
     Item #2

This is what I want:

This is a list:
     Item #1
     Item #2

Is there a "style" to control this?

<ul style="margin-top: 0px;">
<li>Item #1
<li>Item #2
</ul>

Does nothing in NN4.x, but is not harmful and can be used to achieve good results in "good" browsers and acceptable results in "old" ones.

If I eliminate <ul>, then how do I get an indentation of the list?

Yes, I know how to use tables to do formatting, but isn't there a css attribute to control the style of lists and/or indentation?
