This is only a difference in how browsers currently treat the
interaction of markers and text-align.  It's irrelevant for the
ability being demonstrated, which is that the bullets swap sides or
don't.

(That said, the centering is actually unintended - it's a side-effect
of being inside a <table class='data'>.  I don't think I can get it to
work "correctly", though, in a cross-browser way that doesn't cause
distracting issues with marker placement.)

I can add a note to this effect.
