Using Lists in TinyMCE

I’m using TinyMCE in one of my Rails apps and I had trouble today pasting in text with bullets.  TinyMCE injects paragraphs <p> in the code, so the HTML ended up looking this.

That ended up with the text for the bullet point being on a different line (above) the text for that bullet point.

This probably isn’t the proper way to do it, but I ended up going to the second item in the list and clicking enter.  This created a new line that wasn’t preceded with the <p>.  After that I clicked enter and created new lines in the code for each of the bullet points.

On my toolbar I don’t have the option to add lists which made it more difficult.  In the future, I may try to add plugins to handle this to see if it makes it easier.
