List styling problems

I was wondering if anyone knew of the standard way to style Lists.
Whenever I style them, especially when I use my own bullet image, They
show up very different in each browser. The bullet in either up or
down, or further left or right, depending on the browser. Is there any

way to ensure my lists will look neat on all browsers?

When you say the lists look very different in each browser, do you mean
they look *bad* in some browsers? If the appearance is different but
acceptable, then that is not a problem. If you have a problem with the
list appearance being unacceptable in a browser, or browsers, then
perhaps you could be more specific.

Hi Evan,

Have you tried adding the background image to the <litag rather
than the <ultag? Listamatic describes this better than I can:

All the best,

There isn't. Some browsers do it by controlling padding, some use
margins.

So if you ever want to change behaviour from the default, then chances
are you ought to set _both_ padding and margin explicitly in your
stylesheet.
