Chapter 5. List and Mouse Controls > Creating a Hanging Indent

Creating a Hanging Indent

Often, the text of an item in a bulleted list is longer than one line. By using the list-style-position property, you can specify the position of wrapping text in relation to the bullet. Wrapped text that is indented to start below the first letter of the first line of text is called a hanging indent.

In this example (Code 5.3), I have set up the bullets with two position styles: one to create a hanging indent and the other to align the text with the bullet (Figure 5.4).
