I'm not complaining so much about not being able to put the list in the 
paragraph. I don't really care what the solution is, but I want some way to 
make text wrap around a list while keeping the text in paragraph tags. I 
don't care what container the list is in.

As far as I could tell, the top of the text and the top of the list would be 
level like that. I want part of the text to be above the list and part to be 
to the left. I think it looks better that way.
