Transcript:Create Bullet, Number, and Definition Lists in HTMLHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing. Today I'll teach you how to create lists in HTML for your webpage.
Open an HTML DocumentFirst open Notepad. I'm going to open a previously saved HTML document.
Types of HTML ListsYou create lists within the body of your webpage. There are two different kinds of lists, numbered and bulleted.
Create a Numbered Webpage ListFor a numbered list, use the ol tag which needs an end tag. Within these tags use the li tags on either side of each item on the list.
Create a Bulleted Webpage ListFor unnumbered, or bulleted lists, use the ul tag which also needs an end tag. Within these tags use the li tags on either side of each item on the list. Here's what it looks like.
Create a Definition ListThere is another kind of list called the definition list. It allows you to indent text under words you want to define, like in a dictionary. Use the dl tag - which needs an end tag . For the definition term use the dt tag. For the definition that is indented use the dd tag. Make sure that the definition term and the definition is within the dl tag.
