String value as list-style-type

Up until today I've always used the ::before pseudo element on the li of a list to set a marker for the list items other than the standard ones. It turns out though that for quite a while the list-style-type property also supports string values.

Using a dash as marker for list items is as simple as:

ul {
  list-style-type: '- ';
}
