add margin to • ?

Hi,

Rather than using an unordered list, I use a bullet like this:  

•

in front of some sentences to make them look like a list (there's a good reason I do this, but I'll save you the full explanation).

My question... is there a way to put something in my .css file that will give "•" a margin to move it slightly to the right?

For example, something like

• {margin-left:10px}

I'm assuming that wouldn't work since • isn't an html element...

No, you need to make a class for it like this.
.bull {margin-left:10px;}

Open in new window

And use it like this:
<span class="bull">&bull;</span>

Open in new window
