MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek: https://blog.mozilla.org/opendesign/mdns-new-design-beta/

The list-style property is a shorthand property for setting list-style-type, list-style-image and list-style-position

/* type */
list-style: square;

/* image */
list-style: url('../img/dino.png');

/* position */
list-style: inside;

/* type | position */
list-style: georgian inside;

/* type | image | position */
list-style: lower-roman url('../img/dino.png') outside;

list-style: none;

/* Global values */
list-style: inherit;
list-style: initial;
list-style: unset;

Computed valueas each of the properties of the shorthand:

Note: This property is applied to list items, i.e. elements with display: list-item; by default this includes <li> elements. Because this property is inherited, it can be set on the parent element (normally <ol> or <ul>) to let it apply to all list items.
