    When "15px" is given against the padding field & the bullet type is "disc", this is the minimum space between the left margin and the bullet. The bullets cannot be flushed left beyond this point. If a value less than 12px is specified, the bullets do not display, and from 12px to 14px the bullets are only partially visible. If the padding value is anything more than 15px the bullets move right from the margin, accordingly.
