top Bullets disappear with CSS3 columns



css tricks columns (4)

Setting margin-left:1em makes the bullets appear without messing with the text indentation.

The bullets on my list items disappear when I convert them to columns using CSS3. Any ideas why or suggestions on how to correct it?

See the example: http://jsfiddle.net/gduDm/1/

ul li {
    list-style-type: disc !important;
    column-break-inside: avoid;
}
ul {
    list-style-type: disc !important;
    margin-top: 1em;
    column-count: 2;
    column-gap: 0.5em;
}

Answer #1

Adding both padding-left and a negative text-indent to the list elements seems to produce the desired result:

ul li {
    padding-left: 1em;
    text-indent: -1em;
}
ul {
    list-style: inside disc;
}

Alternatively, add a margin-left to the list element (instead of the list) and use outside bullets:

ul li {
    margin-left: 1em;
}
ul {
    list-style: outside disc;
}

Answer #2

I think the bullets are there, but they're being rendered to the left of the viewing area. Try:

list-style-position: inside;

Answer #3

After trying the first answer here, I was having issues with my list items spilling onto a second row and not lining up. Using column-gap I was able to move the second column over and see the bullets.

    <!– CSS CODE –>
    .two-columns {
    -webkit-column-count: 2;
    -moz-column-count: 2;
    column-count: 2;
    -webkit-column-gap: 40px;
    column-gap: 40px;
    -moz-column-gap: 40px;
}
