Html –
    with numbers another color

colorscsshtmlhtml-lists

<ol>
   <li>test</li>
   <li>test</li>
</ol>

will show as:

  1. test
  2. test

I want to have numbers coloured and text black!

I can edit the css, but I do not have access to the HTML.

Best Solution

The CSS spec gives an example of doing just this. Unfortunately, while it works on Firefox 3, it doesn't appear to work on IE7:

<html>
<head>
    <style>
        ol { counter-reset: item; }
        ol li { display: block; }
        ol li:before {
            content: counter(item) ". ";
            counter-increment: item;
            color: red;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
    <ol>
        <li>item</li>
        <li>item</li>
        <li>item</li>
    </ol>
</body>
</html>
