Unordered List

    The <ul></ul> tags make the unordered list. This list is not numbered. The <li></li> tags surround each item of the list.

Unordered List With Different Bullets

    Bullets can be of several different shapes including circle, square or disc. You can set the bullet type for each list or by individual item. Maybe you might want to highlight a new item.

Ordered List With Different Numbering Systems

    These lists can use different numbering systems. In the example above, the i was used for lowercase Roman. An I would be used for uppercase Roman and an A or an a would be used for uppercase or lowercase lettering. Normally, one would modify the numbering system in the <ol> tag, but I modified the <li> tags instead to display the variations of numbering systems.

<ol>

  <li type=i>Make my own web site</li>

  <li type=I>Make my own web page</li>

  <li type=a>Make your own web site</li>

  <li type=A>Make your own web page</li>

</ol>

Definition List

    A Definition List is great for defining terms, like a dictionary. Each term is separate, with the details indented below. An HTML Indent Code changes the margin for the definition details. I usually like to bold the term as well.

  <dt><b>Second</b><dd>The second thing you really should know about making web pages.</dd>
