The CSS for lists across the network appears to be broken. Specifically, the following used to exist, but no longer does:

ol {
    list-style-type: decimal;
}
ul {
    list-style-type: disc;
}
ul, ol {
    margin-left: 30px;
    margin-bottom: 1em;
}
ul, ol, li {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
}

This causes ordered lists:

  1. thing 1
  2. thing 2
  3. thing 3

and unordered lists:

  • thing 1
  • thing 2
  • thing 3

To be rendered incorrectly.

  • Weird. Is this a new bug, or has it always been like this? – user102937 Oct 31 at 21:49
  • @RobertHarvey I just noticed it ~10 minutes ago – The Guy with The Hat Oct 31 at 21:50
  • Can't whatever CSS change caused this simply be rolled back for now? @RobertHarvey: Not always, it's very new. – einpoklum - reinstate Monica Oct 31 at 21:57

    Yep, it's a 'new feature' - Posts that were displaying correctly are now not. – Adrian Mole Oct 31 at 21:58

    @DeanWard Appears to work now. Thanks for status-completed-ing it! – Sonic the Reinstate Monica-hog Oct 31 at 22:50

Apologies for this, a bunch of CSS was removed because it was supposed to be dead. Turns out it wasn't; we've put back the things that were removed and things are back to normality.
