Beth et al:

One more vote for indented bullet lists.

Second choice would be flush bullets. (These are particularly useful where
there is no initial paragraph from which to indent, a situation I have,
unfortunately, run into in the course of my work. On the other hand, if
there is no initial paragraph, who is to say whether the bullets are
indented, flush, or outdented ;-))

I do not need three different bullet indentations. I am trying to choose
the most readable bullet indentation of the three I have shown (outdent,
flush with left margin, *or* indent). I only want one of those three in
our documentation--the question is which one.

I am partial to indented bullet/enumeration lists. They seem to be the
most common type. Our graphic designers seem to prefer the outdent for
"design" reasons. However, I believe that type to be the most unreadable.
I was simply looking for feedback to either support or contradict my position.
