Chapter 7. Formatted Lists > Directory Lists

7.7. Directory Lists

The directory list is a specialized form of the unordered list. It has been deprecated in the HTML 4 and XHTML standards. We don't recommend that you use it at all. Section 7.1.1

7.7.1. The <dir> Tag (Deprecated)

The designers of HTML originally dedicated the <dir> tag for displaying lists of files. As such, the browser, if it treats <dir> and <ul> differently at all (most don't), expects the various list elements to be quite short, possibly no longer than 20 characters or so. Some browsers display the elements in a multicolumn format and may not use a leading bullet.
