Error Rules: Is there any availability of advanced formatting of error message (for instance, to show a numbered list of steps in the error)?

We have several error rules (stop rules) in which we want applicants to correct a field or fields on their application but we'd like to display the error message in a clean manner (i.e. a numbered list of instructions). 

Is this possible?

See screenshot of the existing rule/error which we'd like to clean up.

Hi C,
How about setting up your Rule as follows:
if (supp_yesno_03 == true and (edu_goal != "J"))
{
error("As an Adult Education Student, you should choose the educational goal of: EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT")

error("1. Return to the Enrollment Information page of the application by clicking on the Enrollment Information tab on the left side menu.")

error("2. Choose EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT from the drop-down list for Educational Goal")

error("3. Save the page.")

error("4. Return to the SUBMISSION page by clicking on the Submission tab on the left side menu.")
}
That should make your display more structured looking. Please let the community know if this works for Saddleback College. Happy Holidays!
