Yup, this happens because you highlighted the whole line when adding
style, which *includes* the list marker.  If you carefully highlight
just the text inside the list item before styling, the list marker
won't "inherit" the styles.

This is identical to just specifying the styling on the <li>, rather
than a wrapper inside the <li>.
