Part 1: Part 1: Cascading Style Sheets > List and Mouse Controls

Chapter 5. List and Mouse Controls

One useful feature of HTML is its capability to set up lists that automatically number or bullet themselves. You set up the list, and the browser takes care of the rest. When you add items to the list, the layout adjusts automatically when it's rendered in the window. The available choices, however, are fairly limited with HTML.

CSS gives you many more choices, providing control of the type of marker used to denote the list items, which can be a bullet or an alphanumeric character. You can also create your own bullets and make lists with hanging indents.

The bad news is that Netscape 4 and Internet Explorer 4 do not support many of these features. In addition, for the features that it does support, Netscape 4 does not allow you to use just any HTML tag; it only allows you only to redefine the <li> tag.

In this chapter, I'll show you not only how to whip your lists into shape by using CSS, but also how to change the mouse pointer into a variety of shapes.
