re: 7 CSS properties you had no idea about VIEW POST


It's crazy to me that CSS has these built in properties like the caret property, yet its not possible to change the style of an ul bullet point🤔 CSS is weird!

Great article!


I believe it does, list-style-type does the trick if I remember correctly.


Hey all, thanks for the tips! I actually already use pseudo elements in my CSS to style my lists!

I was instead just commenting about the qwerks of CSS, it's an interesting language to say the least.


CSS is ... interesting

It tries to be a lot of things and is not particularly good at most of them


This made me laugh a little too hard because it's so true. Thanks for that!


A while ago I’ve learned about list-style, is this what you’re looking for? 🌟


The color of the list marker will be whatever the computed color of the element is (set via the color property)

So there's no intuitive "list-style-color" property that would allow a different colored bullet to the font color, the common workaround has been to use spans inside list items and styling the spans with a different color value.

Mozilla have recently introduced a ::marker pseudo-element to allow this more easily, but support outside of Firefox isn't there yet. One to keep an eye on.
