Hi Experts,

How can I change the space between a ul/li bullet image and the related text.  The list-style-position is already set to inside but there is a space of about 15px between the bullet and the text.  I set all related margin and padding to 0 and the space remains.  see attachment

How can I remove that space?
Thanks,
HNM

don't think there is any such property to specify space between bullet and text in a list item. You need to make it two column and then specify the margin between bullet image and the text

Can you show us a live URL or at least paste your rendered HTML/CSS?  You could just use a background image for the li image and then add padding to right of it.

@LZ1: how do you add the padding to a background image?

It has to be a another column to the left, to which you can add the right padding or left padding to the right column text

@gurvinder: You wouldn't add padding to the background image, but rather to the <li>.  
I've done this plenty of times when wanting special bullets or icons in a list.

Something as simple as this will yield the results:
<style> 
					ul li {
						background: url(http://cdn2.iconfinder.com/data/icons/32pxmania/buttons_28.png) no-repeat scroll left center transparent;
					    height: 21px;
					    line-height: 19px;
					    padding: 5px 36px;
					}
				
				
				</style>
				<ul>
					<li> Test </li>
					<li> Test </li>
					<li> Test </li>
					<li> Test </li>
					<li> Test </li>
				</ul>
