Ok, before anyone tells me, I know that it can be done like
li {
but that gives a red background colour to the content of the list item. I'm using OL & I want to give a background colour to the number that comes up before the list item's content. There doesn't seem to be any property to do that, or I can't find one. Can anyone help. I know that it can be done by using a coloured image & positioning it under the number but I would like to avoid using that technique.
And it needs to work in IE5+, FireFox & if possible, Opera. So don't give me any solutions that work only on FireFox or anything saying that IE don't support web-standards, etc. That's not the point of this thread.
