Hi all

I am new to Dreamweaver and is currently busy with a website. It is my first attemt and I am quite happy with my progress. I am just struggeling with a very "simple thing". Can any one help?

Example:

In Word you can place a bullet at the beginning of a line and then press tab to get a decent space before you start typing. When the cursor moves over to the second line it will align itself under the first letter of the first line. In Dreamweaver I don't get the same affect. It doesn't look like this:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.The second line will start straight under the bullet. If I use   it isn't aligned very well.

NB. I am teaching myself as I progress with the site. No formal training.

If anyone can help I will be thank full.

Thanks

and use this in your css file
li {padding-left:60px;
}
(adjust the number - in pixels - to your liking)
