Default How insert images automatically

I have a collection of quotes, and the real-world version uses a dingbat (typographical ornament) between each one. Now I would like to do that on the web.

One choice (I think) would be to turn the whole thing into a list, with a nested list for the ornaments. Then I could use:

ul li ul li { list-style-image: url(dingbat.png) }

And maybe that is the most elegant solution. But if this stuff is a list, it is a definition list, and I don’t know if that works with list-style-image.

I really want to use the same trick with a <p> (or a div).

Any other bright ideas?
