How can I stop Blogger from auto-changing my HTML? MintMouse 5/1/12 7:03 PM
Most of the time I don't bother with Editing HTML on my blog, especially with blog posts, but I have one page where I want a specific layout.

Basically, by using tables, I want to create a two-column bulleted list. I can do it, but Blogger can't leave well enough alone and makes things messy, bloating with unnecessary code. Later, when I want to add more list items, there's a sea of tags for me to wade through. Can't I make it leave the page alone somehow?

I have the same problem when I add internal links to my page...

Any insight would be appreciated.

Try this:

Create your two lists.

Once they've been created, go to the first UL and change it to read like so:

<ul style="float: left; width: 200px;">

Then for the second UL, change it to read like so:

<ul style="float: right; width: 200px;">

Adjust accordingly. You could also do them as inline-blocks if you wanted with a fixed height.
