Using a character as a custom list bullet

I would like to use CSS to style my lists with a custom bullet. I would like to use ">>" but not as an image. I don't want to type it before a link because a screen reader will read it. Can I use characters as a custom bullet?

Automatic Style

I usually do the Banana Republic/J. Crew/Express Men's trifecta. No one who knows me would call me stylish. But one day I bought a pair of Diesel jeans, and suddenly new people in my life think I'm stylish. When questioned, they indicate the jeans. What other brands automatically do this, in that price range? 29-year-old male, Philly/NYC. I'm looking for shoes, shirts, and more pants.

Help me be a bit less fashion-ignorant

Hey guys. I'm 18, male, British, and have really no sense of style clothing-wise. What's the best way for me to very quickly builds some sort of fashion sense, so that (a) I can start wearing clothes that actually look good and (b) I feel less in the dark when people talk about such matters? Basically, what I need is some sort of crash course in style: the lessons I would have learnt if I hadn't spent my time programming.

Chicago is no help to me here

I'm typesetting a book with some music notation in it. There are several references to 3/4 and 4/4 time, which I had set in nifty opentype fractions; however, the editor and I are unsure of whether or not this refers to "four-four" or "four-fourths" time - and this is one of the few things that Chicago doesn't address. So, designers and readers: what do you think? 4/4, using lining numerals, or a 4/4 fraction?

I want to look good. No, *really* good. (Or: personal shopper?)

A few years ago, I had a girlfriend who (gently) took me to task about my wardrobe and made a few suggestions as to how I could look better. I could see the difference after I'd tried a few new outfits, but I'm not very good at coming up with them myself, and I'm not very good at knowing what looks good and what has to change. It recently popped into my head that I could hire someone to help me out with this, but I know absolutely nothing about how to do so--although I hope MeFi harbors someone who does. Can you help me?

Help me learn to typeset equations like it was my job. (Why? Because it is.)

I am looking for a math typesetting style guide.

(Why not? Because my advisor is involved in starting a new journal, and suddenly my labmates and I are that army of editorial assistants.) [more inside]

What's with people oiling their hair and sticking the bangs to their forehead?

There seems to be a trend among older women, at least in Baltimore (mainly African-American ladies, but I have seen Hispanic and Caucasian women do this as well), of matting down hair with some sort of oil. The goal seems to be to get as much hair as possible as close to the scalp as possible. The bangs are then stuck to the forehead, and it looks like this is purely oil based. As I haven't yet had the kahones to ask one of these lovely ladies what's up with the hair, I was hoping someone knew: A. What sort of product is being applied to get this "just out of the oil bath" look? B. Is this an every morning thing, or do you apply just once a week? Once a month?
