Numbered and bulleted list format lost on Nook Simple Touch epub

I am having problems retaining the formatting of number and bullet lists in my epub when reading the document on a Nook Simple Touch. The epub renders correctly in the Calibre reader. However, when I try to read it on the Nook, the lists look like:

1.
First Item
2.
Second Item
3.
Third Item

Bullets do the same thing, with a dot showing first with the text on the next line.

I have tried converting the book using the different profiles (including Nook) with no luck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

What does the code look like of the lists? You can examine this in Sigil. The Calibre reader is not a good judgement on how it will look, it is just an approximation.
Also, don't convert a book with Calibre, it will make editing, adjusting and fixing a whole lot more complex.

Agree with Toxaris' answer.
You can preview in Adobe Digital Editions, not perfect, but better than Calibre's Reader.
