Lists

Lists are used to extract information from the paragraph format and to structure the information into an easier-to-read format. Lists must include at least two items. Be sure that lists are unmistakably lists. You do not want the reader to confuse a list with steps, which denote actions. Use secondary entries only if you cannot avoid them. Complex entries defeat the easy-to-read format of a list.

Use unnumbered (bulleted) lists when the entries are not dependent on the sequence in which you present them. When the entries are dependent on sequence, use numbered lists with numerals and letters to build the hierarchy.
