Wiki text: Create bullets and numbered lists

When writing text on wiki pages, in tickets and in Subversion log messages, one of the most common uses is the need to create lists. List of items, lists of actions, ordered instructions and similar.

Basic idea

Bullet lists are created by indenting the text on the line. Use 1 space + '*' for first level, 3 spaces and '*' for second, 5 spaces etc. for more.

Numbered lists are used by using '1.' instead of '*' - and you don't need to number them yourself, always use '1.' and the numbers will appear by themselves when page is formatted. That makes it easier to maintain a numbered list, insert items, delete items.

Example

Here is a quick example visualising the basic idea:

Just text to show that it is leading space on items below:

 * What to do:
   1. Do this
   1. Do that
 * Second item on first level
   * Sublevel
     * And even further down

And back to normal text again

This renders as...

    2. Do that
  • Second item on first level
