I'm very sorry that I'm unable to make myself more clear! I did not mean
to suggest that there would be lists within lists. Rather, I wanted to
show three types of list items in as short a space as possible.

Needless to say, I'm in agreement with those who have responded previously
that suggest that outdented/extended lists a) interfere with the natural
preference to move back to the "virtual" left margin and b) make it unclear
where the list items belong in the hierarchy of the document.
