   A work-around (that seems to work) is=
   <font color=Maroon><li></font>List item with maroon bullet

I don't quite understand this.

I think the problem we're trying to solve is we want the bullet to
be maroon, with the text the default color.

Unless I'm misunderstanding things, a sane browser should interally
treat

<li>List item with maroon bullet

as the same as

<li>List item with maroon bullet</li>

Do you see that my understanding of the situation doesn't match
your proposed nesting too well?
