Subject: Hanging Indents <DL>

Hello again,

Sorry to repeat myself, but I am _very_ confused now.

This:
<DL type="text/css" style="margin-left : x.xcm">
<DT type="text/css" style="margin-left : -x.xcm; margin-bottom : 0">1.
<DD type="text/css" style="margin-left : x.xcm; margin-top : -x.xcm">This
 section of the specification discusses ...
</dl>

gives me many headaches. I have tried using centimeter measurements, "em"
measurements, "in" measurements, "px" measurements etc, but I cannot get the
hanging indent to align properly in both MSIE 3.02 *_AND_* Netscape
Communicator 4.01.

While one works for MSIE, it doesn't work in NN. When I get it working in
NN, it no longer works in MSIE.

Can someone please suggest a solution, that will work in both?

Thanks vm.
