Not sure whats the cause, but the list won't nest properly

/* CSS Document */

* { 
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
	}
	
body {
	background-color:#333333;
	font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	size: 2px;
	text-align:center;
	height: 100%;
	font-size:14px;
	}
	
div#page-wrap{
	width: 900px; /* to be change once finish*/
	height: 650px; /* to be change once finish*/
	margin: 0 auto; /*margin top to 0 and left to auto*/

	}	
	

.Banner{
	width: 775px;
	height: 182px;
	}	
		
#ulcontainer {
	position:relative;
	top: 0;
	left: 62px;

Nobody has an idea what the answer is?
//This code should be nested, but it doesn't work

<ul>
<li>sample sampl sample sample</li>
<li>sample sampl sample sample</li>
<li>sample sampl sample sample</li>
<li>sample sampl sample sample</li>
<li>sample sampl sample sample</li>
<li>sample sampl sample sample</li>
<li><b>sample sampl sample sample</b>
<ul>
<li>sample sampl sample sample</li>
<li>sample sampl sample sample</li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>

//Output should be like this

  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
    • Indented Data
    • Indented Data

//but instead I got is like this:

  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Data Here
  • Indented Data
  • Indented Data

Anyone know the solution to my problem?

Your code is correct. The problem is the * in the css. Particularly the padding. With

* {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

you've reset the padding of all elements to 0. By default, the browser adds padding-left to the second list. However, you've reset the padding to 0, so the list doesn't get the padding. Delete padding:0; from the * element css and you'll see your list get padded properly.

errr... now my nav bar is messed up how can I work around it?

Change your css back to what you had before and then add this:

ul ul{
padding-left:20px
}

Adjust the padding to your needs.
