This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The ::marker CSS pseudo-element represents the marker box of a list item (<li>). The marker is typically a bullet or number.

::marker {
  color: red;
  font-size: 1.5em;
}

Only a small subset of CSS properties can be used in a rule that has ::marker in its selector:

Example

HTML

<ul>
  <li>Peaches</li>
  <li>Apples</li>
  <li>Plums</li>
</ul>

CSS

::marker {
  color: red;
  font-size: 1.5em;
}
