Just a little advice on css pls, i have a created a new css style and named it "list", the colour of the font is set to #807e7e. When i upload the saved page to my server, the list is there but the text is black, ive tried creating a new class, id and tag and applying the settings, but nothing seems to change the text colour even though its set in the rule definitions?

Im sure its very simple but Im stumped ?

Depending on your browser, use the their tool and highlight the element. It will then tell you which CSS rule is making it black.

If you want us to look at it, you have to provide a link like mentioned.

can't see it either :|
Anyways, as Dave suggest apply the css style to the <ul> not the <li>

and remove the bullet class

Apply the class to the <ul> tags a and create your class on the stylesheet.

this on the external css:
.list {color:#807e7e;}


clearer?

Ok heres the thing, ive completely new to DW, i mainly work with templates in Joomla.
I am learning this prog from scratch and have put this site together from a template also, I think ive done reasonably well so far but just need to get over this hurdle, your answers are assuming my knowledge level is higher than it actually is.:oops:

Ive highlighted the text i want the style to be applied to this has the <ul.bullet> tag in the bar at the bottom of the window.

How do i in simple terms apply the correct formatting to this? Simple terms please.
