Why is <LI> badly displayed ?

Hi HTML Experts,

I would appreciate some advice about my problem where numbers are not
being displayed correctly from a series of <LI> tags on this page :-
http://www.databaseanswers.com/satisfied_users.htm

The first 9 are OK, then the first digit looks funny, and then is not
displayed at all when the number gets to 100.

I would welcome any and all suggestions.

Thanks very much.

Before we go further, put in a line with a doctype for the page and
validate it on http://validator.w3.org/

As a start the validator will find about 236 errors, like this as an
example: "Line 104, column 38: there is no attribute 'WIIIIDTH'"

Invalid HTML can give any result, or none. The most obvious think I
see is that you can't start a <li> inside of <b> ... </b>.

The validator at
http://validator.w3.org/check?charse....htm&outline=x


finds 236 errors, though doubtless many of them are repetitions of
the same problem. You need to fix them. Probably when you do, your
problem will disappear. It's a waste of time even to think about why
something displays "wrong" as long as your HTML is not even valid.

I don't get this rendering here. But, given that this is invalid HTML (you
haven't even declared a DOCTYPE) and CSS, you would be well advised to fix
these errors first.
