I want the code that has checkmark to have a checkmark for the bullet point.

.text-content ul .checkmark {list-style-image:url("../img/global/checkmark.png"); margin-left:25px;}

.text-content ul {list-style:square; margin-left:25px;}


<ul class="checkmark">
<li></li>
<li></li>
</ul>

<ul>
<li></li>
<li></li>
</ul>

Remove the space
ul .checkmark
becomes
ul.checkmark

I presume .text-content is the class of a container, else remove it.

Hi audiotech520, instead of using list-style-image, you could try using a background image

.text-content ul .checkmark {
  background: url("../img/global/checkmark.png") no-repeat 0 0;
  padding-left: 25px;
  list-style: none;
}

Why post an answer to a question that wasn't asked and then repeat the same mistake that was made.

This is your code with the amendment (and a different image as I don't have yours)

http://jsfiddle.net/6Q34f/

I assume you have your css in style tags? i.e.

<style type="text/css">
.text-content ul .checkmark {list-style-image:url("../img/global/checkmark.png"); margin-left:25px;}

.text-content ul {list-style:square; margin-left:25px;}
</style>

Worked!

Also do you know of any any scripts that allow real time code editing, but I can host on my own server? Like the jsfiddle.net
