Question iBooks messing up my unsorted lists

Hello out there!

Hope I'm in the right place for this question.

I'm doing an ePUB project for a customer of mine. And there's a certain problem with unsorted lists and iBooks. This problem doesn't happen with the other reading programs or eReaders!
(P.S. the ePUB was exported by InDesign and manually changed.)

Screenshots:


I switched the font to Cochin, where the problem is more visible.

As you can see the font-family and -size between the <ul>-tags is different from the other text. Whereas in <span>-tags it behaves as I wish.
(What's puzzling me: doesn't iBooks always override the embedded fonts?!)

Here the HTML-Code:
Code:
<p class="Tipps---berschrift">Praxistipps</p>
<ul>
<li><span class="fett">Überlege:</span> Welche Menschen, denen du in letzter Zeit begegnet bist, waren dir sympathisch? <br/>Wo bahnt sich etwas an? </li>
<li><span class="fett">Erweiteren:</span> Es gibt Orte und Aktivitäten, bei denen du dich bei ersten Begegnungen sicher fühlst. Erweitere das, indem du neue Orte und Ansprachen ausprobierst. </li>
<li><span class="fett">Wahrnehmen:</span> Übe dich darin, körpersprachliche Signale von Sympathie und Antipathie, die andere aussenden, bewusst wahrzunehmen. </li>
</ul>

<p class="Tipps---berschrift">Buchtipps </p>
<ul>
<li>Wolfgang Krüger: <span class="kursiv">Wie man Freunde fürs Leben gewinnt: Vom Glück einer besonderen Beziehung. </span>Herder, 2010.</li>
<li>Rosemarie Stresemann: <span class="kursiv">Mich zeigen. Leben ohne falsche Scham.</span> Down to Earth, 2010</li>
</ul>
Here parts of the CSS:
Code:
ul {
	font-family : "DejaVuSerif", serif;
	font-weight : normal;
	font-style : normal;
	font-size : 0.85em;
	text-decoration : none;
	font-variant : normal;
	line-height : 1.3;
	text-align : left;
	color : #000000;
	text-indent : 0px;
	list-style-type: square;
	margin: 0.5em 0em 0em 1.5em;
}
li {
	margin : 0px 0px 0.5em 0px;
}
span.kursiv {
	font-family : "DejaVuSerif-Italic", serif;
	font-weight : normal;
	font-style : italic;
}
span.fett {
	font-family : "DejaVuSerif-Bold", serif;
	font-weight : bold;
	font-style : normal;
	color : #313131;
}
Is there a way to solve that problem? I really don't wanna wrap all the lists in this book in <span>-tags manually, because there are lots of them...!

Thank you for your kind help.

Stefan

I tried this first. But the black small square (▪) was not shown by ADE or the Sony Reader. Instead they showed a big "?". So I changed to export to unsorted lists.

It should work though. As a work-around, I think you could create a span class for the normal text and remove is from the <ul> class. You could also try to put the font family in the <li> class instead of the <ul> class.
