Ordered List not working in IE7

Hey,Been a while since I came on here ... busy busy :) I'm having a problem with an ordered list. Works fine in firefox, opera, safari (beta version for PC) but does ie7 work? No, of course not!In all the other browsers the list is showing as 1.2.3 etc but in IE7, all it does is show as 1.1.1.1. etc. I haven't tested in ie6 yet though. Does anyone have any idea why it's doing this or how to get around it? I've been trawling the web for hours and I'm cluless.The HTML for the list is:

<div id="right-top"><h1>Title Goes Here</h1><ol>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>	<li><a href="">Lorem Ipsum</a></li>			</ol><div class="viewall">view all <img src="images/viewall.gif" width="32" height="11" alt="View All Bands"/></div></div>

The related CSS (just incase it's useful) is

#right-top{border-left: 1px dotted #fff;width: 94%;padding:5px;}#right-top ol{	margin: 0;	padding: 0 0px 10px 35px;	}#right-top ol li{list-style-type:decimal;	color:White;font: normal 70% verdana, sans-serif;height:18px;text-transform:capitalize;}	#right-top ol li a{text-decoration:none;	color:Aqua;	}

Any help would be really appreciated...

Try putting list-style-type:decimal; in just the <ol> tag. Don't add it to the <li>. See if that changes anything.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just gave that a go but it's still not working for IE.I'm working on an offline version at the mo but here's the full code so far for both the HTML and CSS:HTML:

Disclaimer: The site is a work in progress so I know that there are other bits that aren't finished yet but it's just this irritating ordered list that I'm struggling with. The section in question is #right-top.Thanks.

This is a strange one because usually the problem is giving an element 'haslayout', but in your case, it is necessary to remove the 'haslayout' from the OL/LI, so try this CSS for size:

#right-top ol li{	color:White;		font: normal 70% verdana, sans-serif;		text-transform: capitalize;		line-height: 18px; // removes haslayout from the OL and the numbers happen}

For comparison, only change the ol/li for the right-top list and display the page. the ol below it will still have the problem. Changing the height to a line-height will remove the 'haslayout' and the decimal numbers appear.http://www.brunildo.org/test/IEul1.htmlCheck out example 3.2 and you might need to play with the numbers to get IE and FF to agree on the display...14px works okay in FF2, but 16px looks good in IE6, so probably use an IE conditional comment to change the line-height for IE6 would work.
