Question about numbered list in concluence

I am trying to build a numbered list in confluence such as this:





a. Indented

b. Indented


My problem is that I can t get a five, the list restart in 1. I tried both with the RTE and the wiki editor.

Is this list doable in Confluence?

Thank you.

In mark-up it would be like this

# item1

# item2

# item3

# item4

## item4.a

## item4.b


You are not allowed to have blank lines in the list or it does restart the counter.

Thank you. Not having blank lines makes it look OK.

If you are using Confluence 4.0. What i do is create 7 numbers and between 5 and 6 press "Tab" for each or you can use the the wiki tool bar to indent.
