HTML list output format

By default Help+Manual outputs numbered and bulleted lists with <span> tags formatted as inline-block in HTML-based output formats (HTML Help, WebHelp, Windows Exe and ePUB eBooks, Visual Studio Help). This generally produces better results across all browsers than the standard <ul> and <ol> lists generated when you turn the Export lists as texts option off in HTML Export Options (see below).

Even HTML Help/CHM, which uses Internet Explorer for HTML rendering, will frequently produce unsatisfactory list formatting if you do not use this option. This applies particularly to more complex lists and the indents used in lists.
