All you should need to do is change “decimal” to “none”.

However, that assumes that you can rely on all of the browsers the people will be viewing your content with support the pseudo-element “:before” and the other necessary properties for it. You might wish to check that at a site that specializes in CSS and browser support. From what I can tell, as long as your readers aren't using IE you should be OK. People with versions of IE up to and include version 7 will likely see a list with no numbers (so you'd probably want to employ one of the hacks that allows IE to use less fancy CSS while having all other browsers use your fancy version).
