We need to define

  • a unified unordered list-style bullet for mobile and desktop web and
  • unordered list bullet
  • general list bullet/number position (maybe with special treatment on mobile) for unordered and ordered lists?

and take into account

  • numbered lists for 10+ (double-digit list counters), 100+ and 1000+ items
  • nested lists, as ul ul, ol ol, ul ol

Expected skin style properties in Design Style Guide:

  • list-style-position: outside;
  • list-style-type: disc; for uls
  • Special padding for both of them to take into account 100+ item lists, see T150377
