The Unordered List - UL
Use this element to create a list with bulleted items in it. The list items will go inside the opening and closing UL tag. So open the ul tag, put in your list items, then use the closing ul tag.
Use the TYPE attribute to change the bullet styles by using the different values. The default style is the round black bullet.
- type="square", "circle", or "disc"
The List Items
Use the LI Element to create your List Items in your unordered list. Add as many LI to each list as you want.
<li> Taco </li>
<li> Pizza </li>
<li> Lasagna </li>
The Ordered List - OL
Use this element to create a list with numbered or alphabetized items in it. The list items will go inside the opening and closing UL tag.
Use the TYPE attribute to change the styles by using the different values. The default value is number, but you also have options for Roman Numerals, capital letters or lowercase letters.
The second attribute you can use is start. The value would be a number. Try with and without the attributes.
- type="1", "I", "A", or "a"
The List Items
The Ordered List - OL also uses the LI Element to create the List Items. Add as many LI to each list as you want.
<li> Dog </li>
<li> Cat </li>
<li> Fish </li>
You can also nest lists inside of lists. Make sure you close as many as you open
The Definition List - DL
Use this Element when you have terms to define. The Definition List DOES NOT use List Items. It uses Definition Terms DT and Definition Descriptions DD.
The Definition Terms & Definition Descriptions
<dt> </dt> & <dd> </dd>
<dt> Tiger </dt>
<dd> A large striped cat that lives in the wild </dd>
<dt> Elephant </dt>
<dd> A large grey animal with big ears </dd>
