Expression Studio 4.0

Sets a value that indicates which image to use as a list-item marker for the object.


{ list-style-image: sLocation }

Possible values


String that specifies one of the following values:


Default. No image is specified.

url( sURL )

Location of the image, where sURL is an absolute or relative URL.

The property has a default value of none and is inherited.


The list-style-image property can be applied to any element when margin and display:list-item are applied.

When the image is available, it replaces the marker that is set with the list-style-type marker.

If the left margin of the list 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.


The following example uses the list-style-image property to set the image for markers. This example uses the UL element as a selector in an embedded (global) style sheet to set the marker to the dot.gif image:

    ul {list-style-image:url(dot.gif)}

Standards information

This property is defined in Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), Level 1 (CSS1) Ee371202.xtlink_newWindow(en-us,Expression.40).png.
