Ordered lists in comments not working

Ordered lists in comments not working

I can't get ordered lists to work when replying to visitor comments whilst logged in (WP 2.7.1 and threaded comments enabled). The code looks fine and is the same as that used if formatting an ordered list in posts, but the list either doesn't show or each item is number 1!

For WP 2.7 Atahualpa uses <UL> (an unordered list) instead of <OL>

I'm not able to get unordered lists in comments working so that the items are indented and that the bullets show. (Screenshot of another theme attached.) I'm using Version 3.4.4.

Here's the code I'm using:

This is a list:
  <li>first item</li>
  <li>next item</li>
  <li>last item</li>
The code works fine in a post, just not in a comment.

Any ideas?

I beleive this is a Wordpress limit. If you click on the 'You can use these HTML Tags' you get
HTML Code:
<a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <cite> <code> <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <strike> <strong>
these are the only tags available.

If you want to add some spaces, you can use '&nbsp;' to represent 1 blank space

I had a developer check this page for me.

It is not displaying dot points in the list, which I want to fix.

She says this is the cause:

pwnwear.com (line 1333)-http://pwnwear.com/?bfa_ata_file=css

ul.commentlist li {
If I were to remove the display:block she says it would show bullets correctly.
I do not know how to do that. Advice?

I'm still not able to get this to work, even after upgrading to 3.4.9.
