I'd like to use a picture instead of the standard dot (or circle or whatever) in List (created using the UL tag). Is it possible to do this using just HTML or maybe CSS1 ?
Please provide an example of the HTML/CSS lines needed to implement this.

What you can do in standard html is to create a table layed out the same as the list would be.
<table>
<tr>
<td valign=top><img src="mybullet.gif></td>
<td>My text</td>
</tr>
...
</table>


IE4 also supports the style syntax:

ul {list-style-image:url(the/url/of/the/image.gif);}

The first part of the solution is more of a workaround than a solution, the second works only for a specific browser... Nonetheless, better a workaround than nothing at all.
