Hello,

If 'figure 1' and 'figure 2' are images, you should have a structure 
that looks like:
<ol>
  <li>point 1
    <p><img alt="figure 1" src="path to figure 1" /></p>
  </li>
  <li>point 2</li>
  <li>point 3
    <p>some text</p>
    <p><img alt="figure 2" src="path to figure 2" /></p>
  </li>
  <li>point 4</li>
</ol>

Hope this helps,
Laurent Carcone
