How do I make a left-aligned unordered list to the right of a left-aligned picture?

Tags: html,css,list

Problem :

I have an un-ordered list with bullet points. I use two of these lists, first the left of a right-aligned image, and then to the right of a left-aligned image (without the list being right-aligned). The first list shows up fine, but the second list has the text appear to the right of the image, but the bullet points do not.

Is there a way that I can align the list to the right of the image?

Here is a screenshot of the page:

And here is the stylesheet and html:

ul.nobullet {
    list-style-type: none;
    padding: 0;
    margin-left: 2em;

li.globe { 
    background: url(images/earthbullet.jpg) no-repeat left top; 
    height: 20px;
    padding-left: 25px;
    padding-top: 4px;
    margin-left: 3em;

p.bottom {
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    text-align: center;
    max-width: 500px;

    <h1><font color="green">GREEN HOME ENVIRONMENT</font></h1>

        Getting Greener conducted a green audit for a family of five that lives east of Seattle.<br>
        Getting Greener found that the homeowner used more electricity than the average household.<br>
        Any additional energy produced by the panels could be sold back to the public utility company.<br>
        The homeowners also invested in an electric car that runs on the solar electric energy provided by the panels.<br>

    <h3>This homeowner:</h3>

        <img src="images/solar.jpg" alt="Home installation solar panels" align="right">
        As you can see in the picture on the right, photovoltaic solar panels are installed on the 
        roof of the home. The panels face south to get the most sunshine possible throughout the day. 
        The green audit showed us how many panels the home needed, based on the family's average 
        electricity consumption. This family's consumption includes an energy-efficient furnace and air
        conditioner, energy-efficient appliances, energy-efficient windows and doors, and
        energy-efficient lightbulbs throughout the house. Additionally, the entire family is energy 
        aware and responsible.

            <li class="globe">Installation can be completed within one week</li>

        The homeowners also invested in an electric car to make their lives more green. The car
        is plugged into an outlet in the garage, so the power needed to run the car comes completely
        from the solar panels mentioned above. There are many energy efficient cars on the market 
        today. Some states have tax incentives for people who buy these cars. Review reports online
        to see which car might best suit your needs.

Solution :

I found out how to do it: add the overflow: hidden; to the ul CSS like so:

ul.nobullet {
    list-style-type: none;
    padding: 0;
    margin-left: 2em;
    overflow: hidden;
