Simple bulletedlist click not working.


I'm running ASP.NET 3.5. I've created a new "ASP.NET Web Application" project (Visual Studio Pro) and have added an ASP BulletedList with a couple of items, then added a Click event to the bulletedList that simply changes the back colour to blue. Thing is, this seems to do nothing at all, clicking any item in the bulletedList doesn't seem to call the server at all. The attached code is the generated HTML. Is there something missing?

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="" >

    <form name="form1" method="post" action="Default.aspx" id="form1">

        <ul id="BulletedList1">

the click event only fires when the displaymode is set to LinkButton, see attached

<asp:BulletedList ID="BulletedList1" DisplayMode="LinkButton" runat="server" 
        onclick="BulletedList1_Click"  >
