I've always solved this problem by using a character that looks like
a bullet.  Even in standard fonts there are several characters that
can play this role (dots of various sizes, for instance).
The rest is just a matter of carefully setting the paragraph style,
possibly with the use of TABs (right after the bullet).
Works like a charm  :)
