Removing ul indentation with CSS


Question

I cannot seem to remove the indent from my unordered list when long lines in my list wrap around. Here is what my list looks like:

  • Windows users can use putty
  • Mac users can use the Terminal.app
  • Linux users can use SSH [email protected] port 22
  • ...........>Or use an SFTP program like Cyberduck just point it at .........................................>ourserver.com, port 22

(the dots show the indents)

I've read a bunch of solutions and tried setting margin and padding to zero, using text-indent, list-style, but nothing works. I think the problem is that there is a heading above the list that I need to be centered and so I'm setting the margins to auto and then it's messing up the list below. But even if I put say two divs inside the parent div it doesn't work.

Here is the HTML/CSS (I included everything in case there is some setting that is causing all of the other solutions to fail)

<div id="info">
    <p><strong>Did you know you can SSH directly to ourserver.com?</strong> </p> 
    <ul>
        <li>Windows users can use putty</li>
        <li>Mac users can use the <a href="http://www.terminfo.org">Terminal.app</a></li>
        <li>Linux users can use SSH [email protected] port 22</li>
        <li>Or use an SFTP program like <a href="http://cyberduck.ch/">Cyberduck</a> just point it at ourserver.com, port 22</li>
    </ul>
</div>

#info {
    color:#FFFFFF;
    width:440px;
    margin-left:auto;
    margin-right:auto;
    border-radius: 10px;
    border-style:solid;
    border-width:2px;
    border-color:#FFF; 
    padding-bottom:20px; padding-left:20px; padding-right:20px;
    background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 0%, 0% 100%, from(#333333), to(#cccccc));
    overflow: hidden;
}
#info ul li { 
    float:left;
}

This code will remove the indentation and list bullets.

ul {
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
}

Remove this from #info:

    margin-left:auto;

Add this for your header:

#info p {
    text-align: center;
}

Do you need the fixed width etc.? I removed the in my opinion not necessary stuff and centered the header with text-align.
