    list-style-position Redirect 1


    The list-style-position CSS property specifies the position of the marker box in the principal block box. It is often more convenient to use the shortcut list-style.


    Formal syntax: inside | outside
    list-style-position: inside
    list-style-position: outside
    list-style-position: inherit


    The marker box is outside the principal block box.
    The marker box is the first inline box in the principal block box, after which the element's content flows.

    N.B. There is variance among browsers regarding behaviour when a block element is placed first within a list element declared as list-style-position:inside. Chrome and Safari both place this element on the same line as the marker box, whereas Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera place it on the next line. For more information on this, see this Mozilla Bug report and an example.
