what is this bullet point
  • not showing up with circles?
  • I’m trying to show some bullet point list circles on my webpage, but it doesn’t seem to show, and I tried using firebug but I can’t find what’s wrong, I went through my whole css file, and I don’t see where the problem is, i want the list to be vertical with circles!

    Please can you help me, here is the code :
