3 Down description

Chapter 13 HTMLcross, 3 Down description has a CSS property named "list-item-position"; as far as I can tell, there is no property with that name, certainly not in the chapter. It probably should read "list-style-position".

Note from the Author or Editor:
confirmed: change "list-item-position" to "list-style-position" in 3 down clue. (no change necessary to x-word solution)
