    I have put together a page with a left floating text box that text wraps around the top, right and bottom. It was going pretty well, thanks to some help I have already received, but I am having a problem with a bulleted list alignment. Please take a look at the test page below.

    TEST PAGE

    The relevant style code follows:

    Code:
    .textboxleft 
    {
    	background: #3E5C92;
    	font: normal 0.8em/140% arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
    	margin: 10px;
    	width: 160px;
    	border: 1px solid #E4E7F5;
    	float: left;
    	overflow: hidden;
    	padding: 0.5em;
    }
    .textboxleft p
    {
    	color: #000000;
    }
    ul li
    {
    	color: #E0E0F6;
    	font: normal 0.9em/135% tahoma, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
    }
    Of course, you can also look at the complete source code and download the css file for more information. I would be happy to provide any additional information.

    If there is something I can alter in the CSS or HTML to prevent the list bullets from bumping into the text box, please let me know. I am very new at this and have only gotten this far with the help of people like you.

    Thank you,

    Grump
    PS: you will also notice another thread concerning the width of the text box. It does not render at 160px in Firefox, but does in IE.

    This problem has been solved. The article, http://alistapart.com/articles/taminglists/ had the solution I needed.

    Thank you,
