Do you know how I can make it so that the background goes under the bullet?

code: -- the stylings are in an external stylesheet.


<li class="alt"><A HREF="#">Dancing increases lifespan</A>
<span class="notetext">Tue Aug 23, 2005 12:52PM CDT</span></li>
<li><A HREF="#">Boy saved by shoelaces</A>
<span class="notetext">Tue Aug 23, 2005 12:52PM CDT</span></li>
<li class="alt"><A HREF="#">Beethoven's 5th actually written by James Borger</A>
<span class="notetext">Tue Aug 23, 2005 12:52PM CDT</span></li>
<li><A HREF="#">Elephant befriends mouse</A>
<span class="notetext">Tue Aug 23, 2005 12:52PM CDT</span></li>

By default, bullets are placed outside the list items (sort of guessing here). If so, you have to use "list-style:inside;" on the ul in your css.

And maybe you have to adjust the margins and paddings for the ul and li's.
