I had a problem caused by the broken definition lists. If you have a maths equation aligned as a block using a dl ie

:$e^{i \pi}$

This has some impact on Bug 61051 about how MathJax equations are aligned.

Note that VE supports "bulletizing" lines inside a definition list and they end up properly indented.

For example, using VE to highlight 1, 2, and 3 on a page with the following wikitext

: 1
: 2
: 3

and clicking "Bullet list" results in

:* 1
:* 2
:* 3

Seems like this is a good start on some sort of broader support for arbitrary indention.
