    InDesign CS6 Coding ePub Lists Wrong?

    Dan Rodney Community Member

      I think I found a major bug in InDesign CS6's ePub export of list items.


      In CS5 I'd get pretty clean lists:


          <li class="Basic-Paragraph">one</li>
          <li class="Basic-Paragraph">two</li>
          <li class="Basic-Paragraph">three</li>


      Now in CS6 I get this mess


          <li class="Basic-Paragraph"><span class="char-style-override-1">•&#9;</span>one</li>
          <li class="Basic-Paragraph"><span class="char-style-override-1">•&#9;</span>two</li>
          <li class="Basic-Paragraph"><span class="char-style-override-1">•&#9;</span>three</li>


      The same type of thing happens with ordered lists as well. Why are the bullets and numbering now being entered in the code instead of using the native list formatting? InDesig CS6's CSS actually hides the native list formatted because it would of course conflict with the typed in characters.


      This is real mess of code. Is there a good reason for this that I am not seeing? This causes a ton of formatting issues. The same ePub that looked great exported from CS5 looks bad exported from CS6.
