No can do with style sheets. I have to make a page that can be used by 
Netscape 3.01, although I am curious to see a solution using style sheets.

I would like to see the LI tag to have a COLOR attribute that would be valid
for all list types. Is there some sort of protocol that needs to be followed
to submit this suggestion to the W3C for future versions of HTML?
