[SOLVED] Images for bullets

I'm trying to use my own image for bullets in unordered lists in the center area. I've read all the posts I can find in the forum, and I can't get it to work.

I'm a beginner.

I'm using ATA 3.6.4 and I just upgraded Wordpress (can't find where to see what version I'm using!). My website is all static pages, not a blog. url: www.cheeringelf.com

Here's the code I entered in HTML/CSS Inserts:

li {
list-style-image: url('http://www.cheeringelf.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa364/images/bullets/elf-bullet.gif');

I've seen bullet images as gifs and pngs. Does it matter what format it's in? Could it be a jpg or is that inadvisable?

Thank you so much!!!!

Fixed! I didn't know about that way of testing it. Turns out the file name wasn't exactly the same, and I also took out the www. Total beginner issues to be sure--thanks for your patience!
