when creating order list - the second line wraps around and lines uop with the bullet - not the text. How can I fix this?

While creating an odered list - the lines that are too long and tend to wrap,  line up under the bullet.  I'd like them to line up under the actual word.
<blockquote>
<li>
       <p align="left">
       <font face="Arial" color="#555533">Orthopedic 
       Post-Hospital Rehabilitation </font>
       </li>
       <li>
       <p align="left">
       <font face="Arial" color="#555533">Stroke and 
       Neurological Rehabilitation&nbsp; </font></li>
       <li>
       <p align="left">
       <font face="Arial" color="#555533">
     Post-Medical/Surgical Reconditioning&nbsp; </font>
       </li>
       <li>
       <p align="left">
       <font face="Arial" color="#555533">Adaptive 
       Equipment Training&nbsp; </font>
       </li>
       <li>
       <p align="left">
       <font face="Arial" color="#555533">Pre-Discharge 
       Home 
       Evaluations&nbsp; </font></li>
       <li>
       <p align="left">
       <font face="Arial" color="#555533">Patient and 
       Family 
       Instruction&nbsp; </font></li>
       <li>
       <p align="left">
       <font face="Arial" color="#555533">Personalized, 
       Progressive

     </ul>                   </blockquote>

in the style sheet you would look for anything with UL in it.

code with UL type

<font face="Arial" color="#555533">
<blockquote>
<ul type="circle">
<li>Orthopedic Post-Hospital Rehabilitation</li>
<li>Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitation</li>
<li>Post-Medical/Surgical Reconditioning</li>
<li>Adaptive Equipment Training</li>
<li>Pre-Discharge Home Evaluations</li>
<li>Patient and Family Instruction</li>
<li>Personalized, Progressive and InterdisciplinaryCare Plans</li>
</ul>

plus you should move your font and align to the parent element (the UL tag) then you do not need tod o it for every LI tag.

try this:

<font face="Arial" color="#555533">
<blockquote><UL>
<li>Orthopedic Post-Hospital Rehabilitation</li>
<li>Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitation</li>
<li>Post-Medical/Surgical Reconditioning</li>
<li>Adaptive Equipment Training</li>
<li>Pre-Discharge Home Evaluations</li>
<li>Patient and Family Instruction</li>
<li>Personalized, Progressive and InterdisciplinaryCare Plans</li>
</ul></blockquote>

OK, did it.  Now there ae no bullets - though everything lines up!

brad2575Commented:
there are bullets for me in IE and Firefox.  Do you have an CSS that sets the bullets for all <UL> tags to not exist?  That would be the problem most likely.

Not sure - here is another list (same page) that appears correctly - though no need for wrapping
<font face="Arial" color="#555533"></p>
   
   <blockquote>
   <li>IV Therapy</li>
   <li>G-tube/J-tube Management</li>
   <li>Pain Management</li>
   <li> Wound Care</li>
   <li>End-of-Life Care</li>
   <li>Ostomy Care and  Instruction</li>
   <li>Diabetes Care and Instruction</li>
   <li>Complex Wound Care</li>
   <li>Care for Chronic Respiratory Illnesses</li>
   </ol>

then try this without the UL tags (since youd ont have them above either):

<font face="Arial" color="#555533">
<blockquote>
<li>Orthopedic Post-Hospital Rehabilitation</li>
<li>Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitation</li>
<li>Post-Medical/Surgical Reconditioning</li>
<li>Adaptive Equipment Training</li>
<li>Pre-Discharge Home Evaluations</li>
<li>Patient and Family Instruction</li>
<li>Personalized, Progressive and InterdisciplinaryCare Plans</li>
</blockquote>

When I do that - I get the bullets, but the words line up under the bullet not the word.

brad2575Commented:
then you can try settting type="TYPE" in the UL tag like thisL

<ul type="circle">

but this should be done in style sheet not here.

I would still check the style sheet as that is what is causing your issues.

I'm sorry ....this is turning into a fiasco!  

I checked the style sheet and didn't see anything referring to bullets (is that what I'm looking for?)  Where would I put the above command: (<ul type="circle">?
