I thought the four spaces were supposed to do this. And they do, unless there is a bullet point right before them. How can I make this work?


  • Here's some XML:

(it's there, in the source, but not displayed)

You need to intent by 8 spaces. This is a known bug/feature

  • See what I do:

    <ThisWas indented="8 spaces" />

Also, you can 'break out' of the list using an xml comment or something similar

  • See what I do again:
<ThisWas indented="4 spaces" but="I put an xml comment between the two" />

So there's no way to "break out of" the bullet point, short of inserting a paragraph? – romkyns Feb 1 '11 at 18:46
@rom, do you want the xml in the bullet, or after? – jjnguy Feb 1 '11 at 18:46
@rom, either way it is kind of hackey. (See my edit) – jjnguy Feb 1 '11 at 18:49
