There isn't any solution for this in CSS. It's AFAIK, but I have been 
reading the CSS2 spec lately, and there are only 3 ways to specify colors:
color: black;
color: #000000 (or alternatively: #000)
color: rgb(0, 0, 0);

I really hope this is a joke :) No, <li> is a structural issue: it's an 
item of a list, that's all you know. If you present it as an icon, a 
bullet, or a dog bark, that's the issue of the style sheet and the UA. You 
know, DSSSL before CSS was more programaticcaly targeted: but it was too 
damn complicated to work.
