list-style-type is inherited, so if you want tohave different styles of bullet in nested lists, you'll need todefine them individually. You may also have to explicitly declarestyles for nested lists because the user agent's style sheetmay already have defined such styles. Assume that a UA has thefollowing styles defined:

| I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | Q | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z

Index: U

U element: 4.1.6. Text Decoration

underlining: 4.1.6. Text Decoration

removing from hyperlinks: 4.1.6. Text Decoration

There are many different types of software that you can write in Java to make use of XML. I have created 3 major categories to describe certain types of apps (that are currently popular) that are really well suited to the use of XML. This is by no means a comprehensive set of categories; you can create your own, and many more major categories will emerge as XML becomes more popular.

Client side - Graphical Java Applications

The simplest category of XML Java applications is the kind of Java application that stores information in XML documents (files). This is illustrated in Figure 1. By using XML to create your own markup languages (i.e. your own file formats for your information) in an open way, you don't have to use propietary and binary file formats. Using XML over proprietary binary file formats, allows your applications to have immense inter operability across platforms, applications and even programming languages. Since any kind of markup language can be defined using XML (you can even formalize it by creating a DTD for it) applications can store their information using their own markup languages. For example, address book information can be stored in an AddressBookML file. A few commercial programs currently available allow saving their application data to XML files, e.g., Framemaker can save its documents as XML files.

P {margin: 5px; background-color: silver;border-style: solid; border-width: 20px;}
Figure 7-39

Figure 7-39. Inflating the border width to unhealthy levels

This is all as expected: the style and width combine to create aborder whose color is based on the foreground color of the element.

It's also possible to setwidths for individual sides. This is donein two familiar ways. The first is to use any of the specific would be something like what is shown here:

P {position: relative;}   /* establish containing blocks */<B STYLE="position: absolute; top: auto; right: 0; bottom: 0; left: auto;width: 8em; height: 4em;">...</B>
Figure 9-19

Figure 9-19. The effects of absolute positioning

For the most part, the text in both paragraphs looks fairly normal.In the second one, however, the place where the boldface elementwould have appeared is simply closed up, and the positioned textoverlaps the some of the content. There is no way to avoid this,
