I'm having an issue when attempting to style bulleted text for the BlackBerry Curve. I've left everything at their defaults and cannot get the bulleted text to align properly. For example:
A bullet like this on two lines
does not line up when it flows down to a second line
Normally, on a regular computer device the text lines up nice with the bullet, even if its on multiple lines.
Any ideas? I tried setting the "list-style-position: outside" but that didn't do anything.

Greetings and thanks for your posting,
The display behaviour you are describing is a limitation of the the version of the browser rendering engine used on the Curve. A more advanced version of the browser was introduced in version 4.6 of the handheld OS (introduced with the Bold 9000) which corrected this behaviour - text that wraps to the next line in a list-item is aligned with the first character, not the bullet. I'd encourage you to test preview your content on a BlackBerry simulator running a newer version of the handheld software to compare the difference.
I am still in the progress of finding a suitable workaround that will meet your needs on the Curve, however I'm close to drawing a conclusion that there isn't one. This older version of the browser rendering engine did not have full support for CSS 2.1 and therefore certain styles that would allow you to modify how the content is displayed are not supported.
