Hi all, I'm creating curriculum in Dreamweaver and I can't figure out how to get text aligned when using a bullet or a graphical element before text. My dilemma is that I have bulleted text and I can't align the text below with the text above, it automatically wraps underneath the bullet. I'm at wits end, I've tried numerous HTML markup tags and none work. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Michele


If you're in a <p> and are simply introducing a small graphic at the beginning, the text is going to wrap, as you say. If you're in a <li> within a <ul>, the text should hang, which is what I think you're asking for. However, to define the bullet as your graphic instead of the default bullet, you need to edit the style for the <ul> tag. The conventional place to do this is in the .css file that you include by reference in your page, although you can create the style in the page header if you prefer. In either case, Dreamweaver provides a dialog where you can navigate to a graphic to use for the bullet, define the indent and the hang, etc.

You can also create your own paragraph class if you want to leave the default <ul> behavior unchanged.
