Description

15 years ago
The list-item bullets on http://www.beataspeedingticket.com/ are inside the text
of the list items.  The code on the page looks like

<li>
 <p style="margin-left: -29px">Foo</p>
</li>

In IE and Opera7, the bullet moves left along with the paragraph.  In Mozilla
and Netscape 4, it doesn't, so the bullet overlaps the text in the list item.

I'm pretty sure that's not a bug.  We're doing what the CSS says to do.  I don't
see what in the code would justify IE and Opera moving the bullet to accomodate
the margin.

Plus, the CSS declaration as they have it in the actual page is invalid since
there's no unit of length:
<li><p style="margin-left: -29">Foo</p></li>

I suspect this should be transferred over to being a TE bug.
These are outside bullets, right?  Then the margin of the kid should not affect
the bullet positioning.

INCOMPLETE due to lack of activity since the end of 2009.

Sorry for the bugspam; filter on "NO MORE PRE-2010 TE BUGS" to remove.
