Yes please provide more details on your problem. What's wrong in the  
output you get? Is it the indentation of the items, or their labeling?

And also, pretty pretty *please*: in your email software, don't start  
a new thread by replying to a message from another thread. This messes  
up threading in standard OS X applications like Mail and Thunderbird,  
which base threading on invisible headers like (in your original  

In-reply-to: <C8F5FF1E-3A04-4FD8-A498-BA216FD2FCF4 at ms.umanitoba.ca>

revealing that you created your message by replying to one of George  
Gratzer's messages in the thread "[OS X TeX] Re: When Is It Coming  

Again, the invisible headers of your message reveal that you're using  
the text-based emailer Mutt:

User-Agent: Mutt/

According to its web page <http://www.mutt.org/>, Mutt does support  
threading. I wonder whether the same effect manifests itself with it  
(namely messed-up threading when a new thread is created by replying  
to another thread).
