Edit in JSFiddle

HTML

<div id="froala-editor">
  <ol>
    <li>You can use the buttons to play around with the selection:
      <ul>
        <li>The first button saves the selection.</li>
        <li>The second button restores the selection.</li>
        <li>The last button clears the selection.</li>
      </ul>
    </li>
    <li>The selection will be restored correctly only if you don't make any changes by typing into the WYSIWYG HTML editor after you save it.</li>
  </ol>
</div>
