Subject: Re: [WSG] Aligning bullets

Trying to align bullets and get some sort of consistency across the various
browsers is hard, as each browser positions them in slightly different ways.

One option is to use background images. This gives you two advantages over
standard html bullets:

1. you can use any sort of bullet you like - as you control the image.
2. you can place it exactly where you want and it will be much more
consistent across all css supporting browsers.

Most importantly, you can do this without polluting the content with
presentation items (like inline images).

Or all steps combined:



The alternative is to use the html number and avoid images completely:

Double arrow left: «

Double arrow right: »

Bullet: •

You place it where you want it and no markup is necessary and it will be
there without style sheets.
