Hi everybody,
I need to have few centered text rows similar to an unordered list but with a small image leading instead of a bullet. I attached an image to present what I need to have in my form.
Any idea how this can be done in an elegant way?

I would replace the UL with an HTML element and put the following code in:

<ul class="special-image">
<li>I’m writing a long list item 1 so you can see what happens when the text wraps across multiple lines</li>
<li>List item 2</li>
<li>List item 3</li>
</ul>

Then put this in a custom css stylesheet:

ul.special-image {
list-style-image: url('/images/yourimage.jpg');
margin: auto;
}

Not solved yet.
Just to be sure: when you said "then put this in a custom css stylesheet" you meant create a custom.css in the form css folder and copy/paste the code you pasted. Right?

Yes you are correct. I guess a few things to clarify:

1. you need to call your style sheet in the header of the page you have the list on.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/custom.css">

2. upload the image and change the image name in the code i provided so they match.
using example above you will need to create an "images" folder and put your image in there.

ok so i have had this issue before too. To make this work move the image to your css folder and get change your css to

list-style-image: url('bullet-12x13.png');

Should work!

If you want to add a little style to your UL you can add this to your css

ul li {
padding-left:8px;
list-style-position: inside;
margin-bottom:6px;
text-align: center;
text-indent: -12px;

}
