Why does using MoinMoin bullet * syntax produce numbers in help.ubuntu.com but not wiki.ubuntu.com?

Asked by Christopher M. Penalver on 2012-10-01

What one will notice is when one uses the following MoinMoin syntax to produce bullets, it has differing affects, dependent on what page it is posted on. For example, in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibreOfficeBugWrangling , one will notice the syntax:
--CUT--
 * Please do not report a LibreOffice bug...
--CUT--

produces the desired bullet effect. However, when the same method is used in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs , the syntax:
--CUT--
 * Please do not stack...
--CUT--

produces the unexpected output:
--CUT--
1. Please do not stack...
--CUT--

Why does using MoinMoin bullet * syntax produce numbers in help.ubuntu.com but not wiki.ubuntu.com?

This issue/bug is causing an editing inconsistency between https://wiki.ubuntu.com/* and https://help.ubuntu.com/* for the Ubuntu Community. Resolution is needed.

AFAIK this is because of difference in CSS styles.

File screen.css on wiki.ubuntu.com does not alter list styles (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/moin_static192/light/css/screen.css)

File screen.css on help.ubuntu.com changes list style to decimal (see https://help.ubuntu.com/moin_static192/light/css/screen.css)

Here is offending code:

#cwt-content ol, #cwt-content ul, #cwt-content dl {
    list-style-type: decimal;
    margin-bottom: 8px;
}

Can you help with this problem?
