Why aren't my bullet points showing up in Outlook 2003?

If you have a CSS “width” property set in a containing UL, your bullets will not render in Windows Mail, Outlook Express, Outlook 2003 and Live Mail.  Once you remove the width property, you will resolve the issue.

For example, change:
<ul style=“width:250px; padding-top: 20px; margin-top: 2px;”>

to this:
<ul style=“padding-top: 20px; margin-top: 2px;”>

Also, Thunderbird 2 renders bullets like diamonds rather than circles.

One suggestion to resolve this in every email client is to create a table for every bulleted list and use images or an HTML entity as the bullet itself.

For example:

td><img src=“http://www.example.com/dot.gif”>td>
td>Insert text heretd>

td>Insert text here td>
