you need to have the bullet as an image of some sort, preferably a
transparant gif, or such like.
then you do:
<dd><img src="3dbullet.gif"> This is point 1
<dd><img src="3dbullet.gif"> This is point 2
<dd><img src="3dbullet.gif"> This is point 3
see? it's just a trick! note that you'll get wrap around problems that
may only be solved with tables, etc. experiment! "View Source" is
the draft form html3 proposes a method of specifying one's own bullet
but i'm not sure if any browsers have implemented this yet

basically, you put in a call to a program inside your html, like this:
there is a progsoc counter at /cgi-bin/counter , i believe

create a directory in you home directory called public_html
ensure this directory and your home directory are world-executable
inside the directory public_html, create a file called index.html
make sure it is world-readable. the index.html is the default file
used when people looks at your directory without sepcifying a particular
html file to use.
chmod o+x .
chmod o+x public_html
echo "<title>My Home</title>This is my home page" > index.html
chmod o+r index.html
