It seems that the standard way of doing point lists is to respect the right margin and indent the left margin. I wonder if there are any good reasons except for tradition for not indenting the right side as well. I can think of at least two reasons for why I would want to do it:
- I like symmetry
- When having figures that take up the entire margin space placed freely inside a long point list, for example on the top of a page the effect will be something like this:
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Figure 1: bla bla x Point one which makes the figure misplaced x Point two which makes the figure misplaced
In other words the figure looks like it is placed too far to the left when in fact it is placed as the margin and it is the point list that is unevenly indented....
