Where you have

.speciallist li {
font: 13px/18px Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
color: #000;
line-height: 30px;
padding-left: 25px;
list-style-type: none;
background: url(images/bullet_ball_blue.gif) no-repeat left 2px;
}

Just change the line hight to any number. Here I changed it to 30.

Padas is right for the class but somewhere in the body of that page add

<style type="text/css">
.speciallist li {
line-height:25px
}
</style>

Open in new window

I added this to the head and it made no difference:

<style type= "text/css">
.speciallist li{
line-height: 40px;
}
</style>

If in the head then it needs to be below the stylesheet roof.css
You have just above that line.

I moved it below the roof.css but it made no difference.
Seems it needs the !important tag to work, but the bullets do not line correctly

Try adding background-position-y: 8px;

.speciallist li {
font: 13px/18px Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
color: #000;
line-height: 30px;
padding-left: 25px;
list-style-type: none;
background: url(images/bullet_ball_blue.gif) no-repeat left 8px 2px;

}

You can remove the !important and change the class to
section_area .middlepanel .speciallist li
(if you want) the main class was still overriding as it was nested deeper
Add padas background style to that style block as well.
