Yes... and no. You can change the defaults, but you'll need to use styles to do it. You can also set new styles and use those.

However, if you define something unusual it may or may not work.

You can do it differently -- you can set up a table and actually use any image you want to create a 'bullet'. This doesn't use the list commands at all, but gives the appearance of a list.

Numbering on an ordered list can be set, but I'm not sure there's an option for it in DW. It's very easy if you change the actual code, though.

Hey there,

Using CSS To give an example:

   <LI STYLE="list-style-type: circle"> Item 1
   <LI STYLE="list-style-type: square"> Item 2
   <LI STYLE="list-style-type: disc"> Item 3

That'll let you set the actual bullets to something else, or you can substitute in STYLE="list-style-image: url(green_bullet.gif)"> which would put in a green bullet picture (assuming you've made one).

As to seperating your text, you can do that with layers:

<div id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; width:228px; height:264px; z-index:1; left: 28px; top: 10px;">text
  1 </div>

<div id="Layer2" style="position:absolute; width:200px; height:115px; z-index:2; left: 258px;">text
  2 </div>
<div id="Layer3" style="position:absolute; width:200px; height:115px; z-index:3; left: 258px; top: 127px;">text
  3 </div>

Text 1/2/3 are the actual text you'd like to change, and you change the positions of each layer by altering the numbers under height: & left: & top:.

Hope that helps,
