<li id="liItem" class="visibility:hidden" >Item</li>
But does not work.

<li id="liItem" class="visibility:hidden" >Item</li>

should be

<li id="liItem" style="visibility:hidden" >Item</li>

even better:
instead of visibility, use: display
visibility still leaves the space where the li will later appear
use

<li id="liItem" style="display:none;" >Item</li>

visibility will leave a gap. If you do not want that use the display property instead:
<li id="liItem" style="display:none;">Item</li>

Open in new window

finally, the explanation:

'class' is used to look for non-inline styles...i.e... class = "theStyles"
then you would have:

<style type="text/css">
.theStyles
{
        //this is where you would place css
}
</style>


'style' is used for inline style i.e.   style="font-size:20; color:blue;"
