We don't use an editor to enable RT typography. You are using dropdowns in JCE that will not work.
You need to completely disable your editor in order for it to show up.
Site > Global Configuration > No WYSIWYG editor
Users > "You" > No WYSIWYG editor.
Then enter this into the blank white box at the bottom of your content or module:
<ul><li class="check1">Typography is fun</li>
<li class="check1">Typography is cool</li></ul>
Use the available typography for the template off the demo sites.
