Now here's an example of IE mangling bulleted lists. Dan's approach has 
worked for some, but the placement gets a little funky if the text wraps in 
any browser.

CSS control works, unless you don't use CSS to define a wide enough margin 
in the table. If the margins aren't defined, then the bullets disappear in IE.

Having fun yet??

Just my experience so far anyway . . .
