But that's not your target audience. Don't worry about them. As long as it looks fine in ADE and iBooks, everything should be all right.
The problem IS NOT the CSS,

It is the implementation in EPUB viewers.
Lists that look great on the desktop, are a disaster on my hand held.

So go ahead and code your Lists using CSS, as long as you only want to view it on a desktop.
