HTML Question

Display pointer on left side of the div

I have a div element that will display some message indicating a point on my page.

The arrow should be displayed on the left hand side of the div instead of bottom(currently).

Here is my HTML, CSS and fiddle code.



body {
font-family: Helvetica;
font-size: 13px;
}
div.callout {
height: 20px;
width: 130px;
/*float: left;*/
z-index: 1;
}
div.callout {
background-color: #444;
background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #444, #444);
position: relative;
color: #ccc;
padding: 20px;
border-radius: 3px;
box-shadow: 0px 0px 20px #999;
//margin: 25px;
min-height: 20px;
border: 1px solid #333;
text-shadow: 0 0 1px #000;
/*box-shadow: 0 1px 0 rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.2) inset;*/
}
.callout::before {
content: "";
width: 0px;
height: 0px;
border: 0.8em solid transparent;
position: absolute;
}
.callout.left::before {
left: 0%;
right: -20px;
top: 40%;
border-left: 10px solid #444;
}
.callout.top::before {
left: 0%;
bottom: -20px;
border-top: 11px solid #444;
}
.callout.bottom::before {
left: 45%;
top: -20px;
border-bottom: 10px solid #444;
}
.callout.right::before {
top: 40%;
border-right: 10px solid #444;
}
.callout.top-left::before {
/*left: 7px;*/
bottom: -20px;
border-top: 10px solid #444;
}
.callout.top-right::before {
/*right: 7px;*/
bottom: -20px;
border-top: 10px solid #444;
}

<div class="callout top">test</div>
