Bullet List / Changes to Boldface

I have a bullet list that upon export from InDesign to ePub ends up with a bold face type: ADE, Sigil, Calibre.

Is there a way to change the boldface back to the regular typeface?

Here's the HTML and CSS, plus a screenshot of the export.


HTML

<ul>
<li class="bullet-list-ii">identify and elevate your sense of self; </li>
<li class="bullet-list-ii">define the merit of your art;</li>
<li class="bullet-list-ii">and fortify your character with an organic confidence based on awareness for all the seasons of your life. </li>
</ul>


CSS


}
p.bullet-list-ii {
font-family: "Adobe Caslon Pro";
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
font-size: 0.88em;
line-height: 1.33em;
text-decoration: none;
font-variant: normal;
text-indent: -1.71em;
text-align: left;
color: #000000;
margin: 0.17em 3.43em;
}

Try changing p.bullet-list-ii to .bullet-list-ii
(i.e., remove the "p")

Tried your suggestion, but the boldface persists.

Is there a CSS definition for ul or li? The definition you quoted will only affect paragraphs (p) with the class "bullet-list-ii", so I suspect there's something else in the CSS affecting either ul or li tags to produce the bold formatting.

When taking wannabee's tip, which worked, the HTML changed to this:

<p class="bullet-list-ii" xml:lang="en-us">• identify and elevate your sense of self; </p>
<p class="bullet-list" xml:lang="en-us">• define the merit of your art;</p>
<p class="bullet-list-ii" xml:lang="en-us">• and fortify your character with an organic confidence based on awareness for all the seasons of your life. </p>
