Ah, HTML! You can't align things with tabs in FM and have it translate
to HTML -- HTML doesn't respect white space (which includes tabs),
collapsing it all down to a single space.
I'm no HTML guru, but I don't think there's any way to right-align the
numbers in an HTML ordered list (<li> items in an <ol>). I think you'd
have to convert from an ordered list to a table, or maybe do the numbers
and following text as separate <div> tags with CSS positioning.
Way too complex for such a trivial matter, if you ask me. We've all
lived with left-aligned numbered lists in Web pages for a long time now.
Your readers can live with it a bit longer. :-)
