Lists of lists

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
   I've written a simple forum. The posts are lists of lists of lists...
Each new list steps out the left margin. What happens is that after so
many replies the lists get pushed too far right. I'd like to reset the
list margin back to the beginning.

for ex:

ul > ul>ul> ul > ul... {
    margin-left: original thread left position;

??? position: absolute; left 0;
}

For ex:

I would think this would not be an uncommon request.

How now can we do this (other than that)?

That breaks the pattern. Which suggests you need a better pattern.
Perhaps no left margin or padding on all of the replies, or a *very*
little amount that would require a very long set of replies to break a
window width? I assume you know about how to do this, one way:

ul {margin: 0;padding: .2em; list-style-type: none;}

Steeper and uniform.

Sometimes patterns need to be broken. I think it is sufficient to
indicate that the thread has wrapped back. Perhaps the list-style image
could indicate that, a backwards U turn.
