    How do i replace the default bullets with my own image of bullets? Tried searching but all i see is removing bullets. I wanna replace it with some other bullet images. Possible? Thanks...

    Very possible.
    Define the image in the css. Here's an example (at the bottom)

    ol li, #sidebar ul ol li {

    list-style-image: wp-content/themes/default/images/(arrow.gif);

    }

    Should be

    ol li, #sidebar ul ol li {

    list-style-image: wp-content/themes/default/images/arrow.gif;

    }

    Try enclosing the location:

    list-style-image:url(wp-content/themes/default/images/arrow.gif);

    You must have the directory wrong to where you are trying to point to for those bullets.

    For the IE thing, add this to your BODY css

    margin:0 auto;

    Ok...i've done all the above mentioned and still i can't seem to find my bullets. Also the IE6 solution didnt seem to work. The layout is still the same, out of position :(

    froots,

    I'm looking at your css and I don't see that you added the fix. Should look like this:

    body {
    font-size: 62.5%; /* Resets 1em to 10px */
    font-family: 'Georgia', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color: #818181;
    color: #818181;
    margin:0 auto;
    text-align: center;
    }

    ol li, #sidebar ul li ul li {
    list-style-image:url('wp-content/themes/default/images/arrow.gif');
    }

    That works.

    froots,

    The only thing I can think of is maybe you need to specify a body {width:}???

    In the body:

    body {
    font-size: 62.5%; /* Resets 1em to 10px */
    font-family: 'Georgia', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
    background-color: #818181;
    color: #818181;
    margin:0 auto;
    text-align: center;
    width:700px /* put whatever the width of your page is here */
    }

    froots - you haven't changed the css precisely as I have listed above, hence it's still broken.
