I discovered another workaround for the MSN Spaces list text color bug that because of my space’s color scheme makes list text unreadable. The text color appears properly if you view the blog entry via its permalink.
So if you can’t read the list text, click on the word "Permalink" immediately below it, then click on the URL (http://spaces.msn.com/…) that appears below the word "Permalink".
I’ve added this note to the blog entries in which I’ve used lists.
Updated 12-31: Rather inserting text directing readers to follow the above steps, it’s easier to add a "Click here…" link to the top of each of these entries which goes to the entries’ respective permalinks. Changes made.
