Hey, its an illusion. The bullet points are still there, he has set the color to white which means white text on white background. The unordered list items background area doesn't extend to include the points, so they aren't in the 'tomato' color. The reason the list elements are blue is because they are links, which the default color is blue, but doesn't include the bullet points.

Right. quite tricky! Thanks a lot for your time :)

The bullet points are added by the browser. That is because the browsers add their own styles to the html elements.
