bullets not aligning using css

Jun 1, 2012 7:12 AM

i have made a text area, added a text editor but when i view the text area on the page the bullet points are sitting outside the DIV


i am using php mysql and using


<textarea name="landlordsTXT" id="landlordsTXT" style="width: 610px; height: 200px"><?php echo nl2br($row_Recordset1['landlordsTXT']); ?></textarea>




  <script src="lib/js/wysihtml5-0.3.0_rc3.js"></script>

<script src="lib/js/jquery-1.7.1.min.js"></script>

<script src="lib/js/prettify.js"></script>

<script src="lib/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

<script src="src/bootstrap-wysihtml5.js"></script>


thanks in advance

    Bullet placement is controlled with CSS margins & padding on unordered lists <ul> <li>.

    If you use a CSS reset, you may need to add margins & padding to your lists.


    ul li {

    margin-left: 45px;  /**text indent**/

    padding-left: 18px; /**space from bullet**/

    <div ="DivName">

    <h3>Heading text goes here...</h3>


         <li>list item</li>

         <li>list item<li>

         <li>list item</li>







    #divName h3 {margin:0; padding:0;}


    #divName ul li {margin-left: 45px; padding-left: 18px}

    Hello Jonathan,


    you could have a look at my bullets test page, where I've "played" a little bit with different spacing variants. Here is the link:
