List format in Sigil

I have tried to use the following style to format a list.

Code:
ul{
  list-style-type: none;
  margin-left: 20%;
  margin-right: 15%;
}
Straight html viewer displays the list items with no symbols but Sigil inserts bullets in front of each item. Have I done something wrong?

I still get confused in CSS.

disk, square,circle
none is not a choice listed in section 10.3.1

IIRC the default for first level UL is disc (what you are seeing).

From other posts, I gather that 'lists' are problematic in EPUB and probably should be avoided . (code each item by hand)

If you don't care much about exact presentation (margins, alignment, separation between bullet and text, etc.), it's probably OK. But as soon as you want to get a consistent format... forget it, particularly if you want to start a numbered list in an item different than the first.

I can't reproduce your issue, but i noticed some unusual behaviour of sigil with the "none" value and nested lists as well.

IMO, your code is OK, but I agree that they should be avoided. If you've ever seen any list on a pocketbook, you would know what i mean...

Thank you. I will avoid lists.
