How to work around flat flush-left nested lists in Windows Live Writer

  1. Windows Live Writer (2012), in WYSIWYG  mode under the “edit” tab, conveniently interprets “tab” keys, when issued within an <ol>/<ul>, as, i.e. converts them into nested lists.
  2. However, Windows Live Writer does not horizontally indent the nested lists. Rather the lists appear “flat” flush left –(restart in ) only numbering and vertical  indentation, like so: image
  3. The underlying source code feature is that <li> get immediately closed, before the nested <ol> gets even opened, as you can see here: image
  4. You can force the indented view by wrapping the <li></li> around the nested <ol></ol?, like so: image
  5. The resulting look with horizontal indentation: image
  6. Unfortunately, to make matters worse, certain work with lists in the “edit” mode make them revert back to the default “flat”view. So you often have to redo your work under the source code tab.
