Replacing bullets with images

Are there plans to add the option of replacing the bullets in a bulleted list with images, as you can do in Word? Our current workaround is to insert the image as a background image through the CSS with appropriate spacing, but this isn't very accurate.

    Is this not clear enough? I would really like to know the answer.
  • Hello Michael,

    Since the rendering of bullets is up to the browser, we don't have much control over that other than what the browser can provide. According to CSS, I believe the correct style to use would be "list-style-image," but it is not well-supported, and the ICE browser in OHJ does not currently support it.

    I am not sure what MS Word does, but when you save a Word file as HTML, it does all sorts of strange things to the HTML. For example, a quick test showed that saving a list (with custom bullets) as HTML created a series of P elements with things like <span style='font-family:Symbol'>^<span
    style='font:7.0pt "Times New Roman"'>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span>

    You could do things like that, too, but it isn't good HTML.
