When attempting to generate a BI Publisher PDF Report based on Rich text data using the html2fo syntax, the list tag margins (eg. "<style="margin-left: 40px;">") are being ignored and so each list tag shows the same default margins, making it look different from the page displayed in the browser.

For example, there is a text indented as follow:
- numbers with left spacing 10px and
- letters with left spacing 40px.

In the PDF, both letters and numbers have the same margin-left spacing.

The data based on Rich text data that displays on web application (in browser) shows with the correct indentation for each of the two separate lists they are displaying on a page.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login to PIA
2. Navigate to Reporting Tools > BI Publisher > Query Report Viewer
3. Look for an existing Letter
4. Display with PDF output
5. The misalignment occurs
