View Full Version : ul / li positioning issue

07-10-2007, 11:39 PM

I haven't had this much trouble with this in a while so perhaps a fresh pair of eyes might help.

I'm trying to adjust the positioning of the bullet associated with my list, as well as the space between each <li> in my <ul>'s. You can see what I mean here: www.enviromark.ca/head/ --> click on the first vertical icon.

Specifically I want to position the bullet in the horizontal center of the first sentence (right now it hangs to the top).
I also wish to add a 20px space between my <li>'s, but have a 10px space when I nest <ul>'s

Thanks. If no one responds I'll take another look at this in an hour, i just know the solution is simple :o
