List Attr Tab

List Attr Tab of DocToHtml Converter Options Dialog

To see a popup hint telling you which HTML or CSS attribute will be used to represent a given formatting feature, move the mouse cursor over the item of interest.

Omit middle <LI> for nested unordered lists—if turned on, this option will make DocToHtml eliminate middle <li> tags if the nested level of an unordered list item changes by more than one. It will result in a cleaner code, though incompliant with the HTML 4.01 standard.

Don't use <P> tag inside <LI>—checking this checkbox will prevent strings like <LI><P>List item content</P></LI> from appearing in the output HTML code. The program will insert <LI>List item content</LI> instead. Omitting the <P> tag will reduce the resulting file size and make it easier to edit. However, it may affect the webpage’s appearance, especially left indentation and vertical margins between list items.

Omit left padding & margins for <ol>, <ul>, <li> tags—it is recommended to combine this option with the “Don't use <P> tag inside <LI>” option.

Don't enclose headings into <ol><li>, <ul><li> tags—this option helps you get rid of unnecessary ordered or unordered lists in the output document. MS Word has some powerful features to use auto-numbered lists for headings, but sometimes you may want to omit this formatting from output HTML. To do that, just check this checkbox.

Don't include list styles into CSS—when turned on, this option excludes styles that define the indentation of list items at different levels in the output CSS code. Check this checkbox to get more pure HTML code. You can also use it if you are going to define the indentation on your own.

Merge attributes with <LI> tag—checking this checkbox will make DocToHtml merge formatting attributes with the LI tag. It can be useful to get rid of unnecessary <P> or <DIV> elements inside <LI> tags. Combine this option with the “Don't use <P> tag inside <LI>” option.

Do not merge subsequent levels for unordered lists—this option is handy if you have a lot of nested ordered captions for different sections of your document, such as a technical manual or help documentation. Suppose, you have a heading like “1. Section one” immediately followed by “1.1 Subsection one.one”; when this option is turned off, the resulting HTML document will look like this:

  1. Section one
    1. Subsection one.one
But if you turn this option on, the resulting HTML document will look closer to what you were probably expecting:
  1. Section one
    1. Subsection one.one

More precisely, this option forces DocToHtml to insert all ordinal markers (usually digits) before all list items whose nested level is deeper than that of the previous paragraph by exactly one level.
