I also found that it works if you go to page properties a change all the text colors from default black to whatever color you want them to be.

that only changes the bullet colour, the OP wants a different image ;)

domedia posted the answer to this in the first post.

Go to you CSS palette, make a new CSS style, change your category to list, then choose what image you woud like to use for a bullet. Apply this style to your copy and preview in browser.

There are some other types such as squares and such, but for a star, you will need to make an image. Illustrator has a great star tool, you can use the up or down arrows while drawing to add or remove points form the star. Holding down control while drawing, will allow you to chanege the inner radius of the star.

And if you don't have Illustrator, Photoshop does a decent job as well. Illustrator probably is the better tool since your star will be pretty small taken the nature of what you're going to use it for. If you don't like the current star shapes in PS, you can always go to adobe's website which features plenty of free downloads (for Illustrator as well). I just made a star in PS yesterday, a star 'badge' kinda a thing http://www.designmeltdown.com/chapters/Badges/ which seems to be more and more popular now and placed it on one of my affiliate free ipod websites.
