3. Text Formatting > 3.2. Lists

Lists

Lists organize the everyday information of our lives: to-do lists, grocery lists, top ten lists, and so on. On Web pages, lists are indispensable for presenting groups of items such as links, company services or employees, or a series of instructions.

HTML offers formatting options for three basic categories of lists (see Figure 3-4). The two most common types of lists are bulleted (called unordered lists in the HTML language) and numbered lists (called ordered in HTML). The third and lesser-known list type, a definition list, comes in handy for creating glossaries or dictionary-like entries.

HTML has several predefined list formats, including bulleted lists and definition lists, which let you organize information into orderly units. Once you’ve told Dreamweaver that you intend to create a bulleted or numbered list, it adds the bullets or the numbering for you automatically.
