You're telling it to use a whole paragraph for the 'bullet character'
and something isn't fitting in the space.
The <bullet> tag should only wrap up the text you wish to use for the
'bullet' - this will usually be a single character accessed as •
or • but it might be a number or longer text fragment. I am
going from memory here but these should work.....
<para><bullet>•</bullet>The rest of my paragraph</para>
Or, for a numbered list, place numbers or the <seq> tag inside the
<para><bullet>1.</bullet>The rest of my paragraph</para>
Or, for a definition list,
<para><bullet>My term:</bullet>My longwinded definition</para>
If this looks weird on the eye, the <para> tags are optional; our
parser appends them if you don't.
You should not normally need to set a different bulletFontName or
bulletFontSize, but you might want to if you want to use fancy symbols
out of ZapfDingbats or some such.
I checked the user guide and although what it says is correct. it
doesn't have an example; I'll try to add one this morning.
