Creating Lists

There are three types of HTML lists.  There is the bulleted list that is called an unordered list.  The numbered list is called an ordered list.  There is the definition list that provides a list of terms and their meanings. 

Example of a bulleted list:

When I go to the shop I will purchase the following items:

Milk

Orange Juice

Brown Flour

Green Peppers

Here is the bulleted list code...

<ul>
<li> Milk
<li> Orange Juice
<li> Brown Flour
<li> Green Peppers
</ul>

Example of a numbered list:

Before I shop, however, I need to do the following things:

  1. Drive the kids to school

  2. Go to the doctor

  3. Visit the pharmacy

Here is the numbered list code...

<ol> 
<li> Drive the kids to school
<li> Go to the doctor 
<li> Visit the pharmacy
</ol>
