There are three types of lists
- Ordered Lists - items are numbered Order lists start and end with <ol> then the list starts <li> item </li> <li> item </li> end list items </ol>
- Unordered lists - items ordering does not matter. They have a bullet or symbol in front of each item. I.c. grocery list Unorder lists start with <ul> then the items <li> item </li> <li> another item </li> then end of list </ul>
- Definition lists - set of terms with definitions This list type uses different notation. It is defined with the <dl> notation and the <dt> notation for the term and the <dd> for the definition . <dl> then <dt> term </dt> <dd> the definition </dd> <dl> There may be more then one term <dt> </dt> between the <dl> </dl>
Lists can be nested within lists.
