Format fix for lists?

I was mad enough to try to have a list with points and sub-points The formatting has not turned out disastrously, but the numbering has become ambiguous where the subpoints go 2,3,4,rather than 1a, 1b ,,,or similar. If that's an easy fix for an Admin then I'd be grateful.
But if it's tedious to do - I looked at the HTML and boggled at trying to remember how to edit it manually Smile- then not to worry : I expect folks will manage.

How's it look now?

What happened was placing the {/ol} and {li} side-by-side at the end of a line, instead of starting the next line with the {li} followed right after by the text.

Fascinating, I'd never tried using that markup before!

Thank you very much!

Thank you! Confession: I wasn't intending to try some novel HTML markup - I pasted the text in from Google docs and then realized I no longer remembered how to untangle it!

Could I ask one more favour - in the quiz post I say 'I re-read the chapter in isolation'. I've just realised that's a very unfortunate turn of phrase right now. I meant 'I re-read the chapter all by itself' (as in not as part of reading the book in the normal way). But in the current situation I could be understood to mean ' I read the chapter whilst keeping myself isolated from the rest of humanity because of coronavirus'. Fortunately it's not that, and if you could edit it to prevent anyone worrying about me, that would be great. Sorry to be the source of yet more admin tasks.
I use a similar phrase in the OP. There I think it's clear enough from context what I mean, but feel free to make a similar edit in that post, if that seems wise.
many thanks!

All set

And I changed the OP a bit, as well. No ambiguity now! Smile
