Hi, Diap:

ul and ol in K7 have always worked, as long as they are at the left-margin, and not indented at all. At the left margin, the word-wrap for the second line of any list elements aligns. However, once you indented a list, by whatever means (margins, blockquotes, you name it) it wouldn't align the wrapped words (using ol or ul); it would create a hanging indent that would up- and down-size with the font, so that the hang would always move a little bit left, or a little bit right, and never really be properly aligned on the vertical plane. I had clients that went absolutely hysterical over this. If I've explained it once, I have, literally, explained it several hundred times in the last 4 years. The reality is, no one cares, except of course the author. But we do many non-fiction titles, with extended outline format content, and not being able to reliably use indented ol/ul has been a giant PITA.

The 2.5.1 announcement simply said "resolves K7 issues with numbered and bulleted lists," or words to that effect, so I'm guessing that the "can't be attractively indented" ul/ol issue is resolved. On the other hand, I could be full of poo. ;-)
