How can I  move the text in the ol and ul lists.  In the  ol I need text closer to the number. In the ul I need text not so close to bullets.

http://www.attinc.com/software1.html

CSS
ul {
      font-family: Arial, Verdana, sans-serif;
      font-size: 13px;
      text-align: left;
      list-style-position: inside;
      list-style-type: none;
      margin-left: 0;
      list-style-image: url(images/bdot-sm.gif);
      
}

ol{
      margin: 0px;
      padding-left: 4px;
      list-style-position: inside;      
}

Thank you,
Frieda

To increase the spacing between your bullets and the text change your list-style-position to outside, then you can use text-indent to increase the spacing between the two:

ul {
      font-family: Arial, Verdana, sans-serif;
      font-size: 13px;
      text-align: left;
      list-style-position: outside;
      list-style-type: none;
      margin-left: 0;
      list-style-image: url(images/bdot-sm.gif);
      text-indent: 10px;
     
}

Similarly for your ordered list, change the list-style-position to outside, then specify a negative value for the text-indent:

ex:

ol{
      margin: 0px;
      padding-left: 4px;
      list-style-position: outside;      
      text-indent: -3px;
}
