It looks like I was able to make a nested list by using 3 spaces (and then 2 spaces for each additional nested list), even though the formatting tip says "4 or 8 spaces" are required. See image below.

Here is the markdown I used:

1. test
   - test
     - test

Here is a live example:

  1. test
    • test
      • test

So either the tips are wrong or the markdown renderer is not working correctly.

    It appears to work with 3–6 spaces for the first item, and extra 2–5 spaces per each additional nested item (not just multiples of 3). – Emil Jeřábek Sep 29 at 13:52
  • @EmilJeřábek You're right. I updated the question to reflect that. Thanks. – Kodos Johnson Sep 29 at 23:52
  • @KodosJohnson there is a sandbox to test the kind of things you tried in your now deleted answer. – Luuklag Sep 30 at 8:59
