Think of it as one list, with various indents and bullet-types according to the nestedness of your input.

I have examples (at home) if you need them - to four bullet levels

Hello -

I am trying to convert a nested, bulleted list in HTML to XML-FO for output
as a PDF in Apache FOP. The HTML looks like this

    <li>Item Number1</li>
           <li>Sub-Item 1</li>
           <li>Sub-Item 2</li>

All of the XSLT I have tried creates a with an embedded for the subitems.
FOP, however, complains that you can't have a list-block as a child of a
list-block. Is this an issue with FOP? Or, is that simply not valid XML-FO
and all of the XSLT examples are processing this construct incorrectly?

If it's the later, what is the proper XML-FO to produce a nested set of
bullets like you would see in HTML?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
