    Bullets look

    I am trying to ascii translate/substitute round Bullet coming from Word to a web page where it gives me a smaller Bullet compared to the Word version.

    I can use a tag like <li> to translate but dont want to use html tags in my translation.

    I tried &middot; and &ordm; but both output small bullets.

    Please advise of any others I can try to get the large round bullet look similiar to Microsofts large Bullets look.

    This gives me the square bullet ( I put spaces in between & and # and 149; because this site wont take it and makes it an icon. On my web page the & and # and 149; are together):
    Code:
    & # 149;
    How do I get round one?

    Thanks.

    Hi there florida,

    the size of an ASCII character is dependent on font-size, so you should use CSS to achieve this....
    Code:
    
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    #dot {
         font-size:64px;
    }
    -->
    </style>
    
    <span id="dot">&#38;#149;</span>
