Hi,
What is the command to designate my own graphics as  the bullets used in a list?
Is the list format the best for an index page where the various sub pages are going to be accessed by clicking on those "graphic bullets"?

I don't think you can change the default image.
You can use any image you want but you have to build the list.
If you have an image called bullet.gif make a list (with clickable images and links) like

<a href="link1.htm"><img src="bullet.gif" alt="link1></a>
<a href="link1.htm">Link 1</a>
<br>
<a href="link2.htm"><img src="bullet.gif" alt="link2></a>
<a href="link2.htm">Link 2</a>

better (more reliable) formatting can be acheived using a table

slinky's code could be shortened to
<a href="link1.htm"><img src="bullet.gif" alt="link1" border="0"> Link 1</a>
<br>
<a href="link2.htm"><img src="bullet.gif" alt="link2" border="0"> Link 2</a>
