raymond,  how cruel

*** just kidding ***

actually, olly, the page is hugely interesting -- it's about BIKES!!

anyhow, about your hanging indent...

you have two choices -- put that stuff in a table with bullets in the left
column valign top and the items in the right column, or put back your
<ul>..</ul> tags and adjust the whitespace above and below the entire list
with css

since you are generate the <LI> with a document.write, changing the design
to a nested table will be hard, even harder than normal

(by the way, that whole moreover news feed disappears if javascript is
turned off)

as for the whitespace, it will be some combination of padding and/or
margin, and you may have to apply it to the LI as well as the UL

remember to check what you do in several browsers, because padding and
margin are not universally interpreted the same way
