In a recent answer, I made a list with the <ul> and <li> tags, as always. When I placed a link in one of the answers, it was broken, it looked like that:[description text][1].

What did I do wrong? How to correct it?

Don't mix HTML with Markdown. The proper way to make an unordered list in Markdown is to use either '*', '-', or '+' like so:

  • foo
  • bar
  • baz
    • biff
      • bam
      • boop

Ordered lists are done similarly by using the digit 1.

  1. Foo
  2. Bar
    1. Biff
    2. Bam
  3. Boop

This is also accessible using the toolbar directly above the edit window.
