I am formatting text for an e-book and I would like to highlight several bulleted lists with a light greyscale background. I've tried using paragraph fill, and that gives me exactly the effect that I'm looking for - but leaves blank spaces between the highlighted bullet points in the list. Is there any way to get rid of those white breaks? (I would rather not have to use text boxes, as they must be inline boxes in order to upload properly and the font size of the text within the box and the box itself remain fixed in size - and don't adjust, with the rest of the text, if the reader chooses a larger font size.)


Thank you,
