Remarks

The list-style-type property determines the appearance of the list-item marker if the value of the list-style-image attribute is set to none, or if the image pointed to by the URL cannot be displayed.

The list-style-type property can be applied to any element when margin and display:list-item are applied. The display:list-item property is available starting with Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.

If the left margin of a line item is set to 0 using one of the margin properties, the list-item markers do not show. The margin should be set to a minimum of 30 points.

Examples

The following examples use the list-style-type attribute and the list-style-type property to set the markers.

This example uses ul as a selector in an embedded (global) style sheet to change the marker type to circle.

Code example: http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/samples/author/dhtml/refs/list-style-type.htm


<style>
    ul { list-style-type:circle }
</style>

This example uses inline scripting to change the marker type on when an onmouseover event occurs.

Code example: http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/samples/author/dhtml/refs/listStyleType.htm


<ul onmouseover="this.style.listStyleType='circle'">

This example demonstrates the newer line-item markers added for Internet Explorer 8.
