 Lists
 =====
 
+.. warning::
+   All Moin Wiki list syntax (including that for unordered lists, ordered lists and definition lists) requires a leading space before each item in the list.
+   Unfortunately, reStructuredText does not allow leading whitespace in code samples, so the example markup here will not work if copied verbatim, and requires
+   that each line of the list be indented by one space in order to be valid Moin Wiki markup.
