adding special characters before category lists

  • Have a look at the CSS for the deafult theme (Kubrick) – the » character is placed before list elements by the css.

    Do you know where this is added in Kubrick? I looked all over for » but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Nowhere in any of the li definitions does it seem to specify this element. This is driving me crazy!!!

    Have you looked in the CSS file?

    That is where the special bullet should be defined.

    I looked, but I can’t find it. When I wrote: “Nowhere in any of the li definitions does it seem to specify this element.” I was referring to the CSS file. Unless I’m going blind…
