Removing stray bullets at the start of numbered lists

If you encounter a stray bullet to start a numbered list you can remove it from the source code.

Usually the cause of this is that the numbered list (indicated by the <ol> tag) is wrapped as a list item <li> tag in an unordered list <ul> tag.

To fix it in the source:

  1. Find the ordered list in the source code.
  2. Confirm that it is wrapped in <ul> tags.
  3. Delete the opening <ul> and <li> tags preceeding the list.
  4. Delete the closing </ul> and </li> tags fllwing the list.
  5. Be sure to leave the ordered list tags intact.
