Bullets from Docx file get converted to Unicode U+B7 "Middle Dot" in HTML conversion

When I try and convert the attached docx, the resultant HTML doesn’t include a bullet list but instead a series of paragraphs that include the Unicode U+B7 “Middle Dot” character in the paragraph text to “simulate” a bullet. What do I have to do so that the bullets convert? This is a simple enough document, so I am surprised that there are problems.

The resultant HTML:

·         Test

·         Test two

·         Test three


<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your request. Yes, Aspose.Words outputs list to HTML like this. This was done to output list numbering better. As you may know, there is no native method in HTML to output multilevel lists. By the way MS Word outputs lists the similar way.

We will consider adding an option, which controls how lists are exported to HTML. Your request has been linked to the appropriate issue. You will be notified as soon as it is resolved.

Best regards.

Nonsense. HTML easily supports “multilevel lists”. Just have a look at this (

Thanks for your request. Yes, you are right, but HTML does not support multilevel lists like the following:

1. test

1.1 test

1.1.1 test

2. test

2.1 test

2.1.1 test

2.1.2 test

2.2 test

2.2.1 test

3. test

Best regards.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-1170) have been fixed in this .NET update and this Java update.
