Okay, I know the nesting is up the creak, but it's doing the job. To 
change the colour of the bullet, you can just use a font tag around the 
<Li> (This also allows you to change the size, font etc..)

BTW: the "<li>item</li> =? <li>item" discussion came up after I'd written 
my previous message...
