The first thing you want to do when adding in content is to make sure the "Body" section text format (below) is set at WYZIWYG instead of plain text. This setting will allow you to cut and paste Word document text, format it with various tools available in the control ribbon, and even add hyperlinks or upload documents too the site using the link icon function.
You can leave the Body section setting to plain text format however, if you are cutting and pasting simple, single paragraph text. To make lists of links that are numbered, highlight your list, then choose the Numbered List icon in the ribbon. For lists that have background stripes, highlight list then choose the Ordered List icon on the ribbon. To simply add a bullet point to a list item, choose from the Special Characters icon in the ribbon.
When done, click save.
