I'm experiencing a problem with the list rendering. The first inner "decimal" list (2-d level) becomes "Upper Alpha" like the last inner list (2-d level). This happens with the 3-d level and so on. Basically all the styles for the first inner list are overwritten by the last ones.

<?php

$docx = new CreateDocx();

$html = '
    <style>
        .list-decimal {list-style-type: decimal;}
        .list-upper-alpha {list-style-type: upper-alpha;}
        .list-upper-roman {list-style-type: upper-roman;}
    </style>
    <ol class="list-upper-roman">
        <li>UPPER ROMAN 1
            <ol class="list-decimal">
                <li>Decimal 1</li>
                <li>Decimal 2</li>
                <li>Decimal 3</li>
            </ol>
        </li>
        <li>UPPER ROMAN 2</li>
        <li>UPPER ROMAN 3</li>
        <li>UPPER ROMAN 4
            <ol class="list-upper-alpha">
                <li>UPPER ALPHA 1
                    <ol>
                        <li>Decimal 1</li>
                        <li>Decimal 2</li>
                        <li>Decimal 3</li>
                    </ol>
                </li>
                <li>UPPER ALPHA 2</li>
                <li>UPPER ALPHA 3</li>
            </ol>
        </li>
    </ol>';
$docx->embedHTML($html);
$docx->createDocx('output');

Hello,

That kind of list styles uses overwriting level styles from MS Word, that are supported since phpdocx 9.5 (https://www.phpdocx.com/news/post/phpdocx-v9-5-release-notes/219) but only in addList and createListStyle. They'll be supported in HTML methods in the next release of phpdocx, as it's a work in progress.

Using the current version of phpdocx, the approach to be used would be adding placeholders in the positions to add the lists:

<ol class="list-upper-roman">
    <li>UPPER ROMAN 1
        $LIST_1$
    </li>
    <li>UPPER ROMAN 2</li>
    <li>UPPER ROMAN 3</li>
    <li>UPPER ROMAN 4
        $LIST_2$
    </li>
</ol>

and then use replaceVariableByWordFragment or replaceWordContent from DOCXPath to replace the placeholders with the new lists.

Regards.
