CREATING LISTS IN HTML Tutorials: Lessons for Learning How to Create Lists such as Making HTML Unordered Lists, Ordered Lists, Bulletted Lists, & Definition Lists.

Lists - Lists are a great way of laying out information in web pages, because they are simple to read and look good. Lots of people seem to think that the bullet points are little images, but in reality they are all generated through some rather simple HTML code.

Ordered List
Ordered lists allow you to quickly and easily display information that is easy for your visitors to read quickly. An ordered list creates a list, which is indented, numbering the list items, starting at one. This section will explain how to make an ordered list.

Unordered List
Unordered lists allow you to quickly and easily display information that is easy for your visitors to read quickly. An unordered list creates a list, which is indented, and each item has a bullet. This section will explain how to make an unordered list.


Definition List
Definition lists are not widely used, but serve a useful purpose. They allow you to write definitions for words, that are easy to read for your visitors. Below, you will learn how to make a definition list.

Lists
There are several different types of lists that can be very useful. Please note that they are not always read EXACTLY the same by all browsers. There can be some variation in the line spacings and the type of bullet displayed.

Lists
HTML supports unnumbered, numbered, and definition lists. You can nest lists too, but use this feature spareingly because too many nested items can get difficult to follow.

HTML coding: HTML Lists
We all understand the importance of lists in everyday life. They are an indispensable tool for cataloging and indexing various objects and events. Two kinds of lists are very common and used by us regularly. The Ordered Lists help us keep an organized inventory wherein the list items are ranked while in Unordered lists, the classification is not important and the list items do not occur in any assorted order.


HTML tag tutorial: Creating hyperlinks on web pages
HTML documents contain certain 'hot spots'. These hot spots provide anchors that link to other documents/files on the Internet. The stupendous growth of the Internet and the WWW is attributed to these tags. It's hard to imagine a network without links and interlinks.

Adding bullets and lists
HTML provides webmasters an easy way to create attractive bullets and lists for listing things. Before anything else, here's an example of both…

HTML Lists
HTML supports ordered, unordered and definition lists.An unordered list is a list of items. The list items are marked with bullets (typically small black circles)…

An unordered list
This example demonstrates an unordered list.

Bulleted Lists
This page shows how to make different kinds of bulleted lists.

Numbered Lists
This page shows how to make different kinds of numbered lists.

Making A List
Often you may want to provide information in a list rather than in a paragraph. There are two types of list we will talk about. The ordered list (numbered) and the unordered list (bulleted).

HTML Lists
Lists are a useful way of getting information across quickly and are used frequently on the Web. HTML allows you to create three types of lists: unordered, numbered or ordered, and definition. The first two are found more commonly than the last.

Lists
Lots of web pages display lists of items -- they might be items displayed with a "bullet" (Unordered) or a sequentially numbered list (Ordered).

Definition Lists
Now we are going to learn a third variety, the definition list. Unlike the lists we learnt earlier, the definition list marks its entries not with a bullet marker or a number, but by its pattern of indentation. The format for a definition list tag is...

Lists
An ordered (numbered) list, like any list is easy to make and great for organizing / displaying information on your web pages.

Creating a list of items
There are several types of list, an un-ordered list can be created by the following markup…

Creating Lists
There are three types of lists you can create: Unordered, Ordered and Descriptive…

Creating Lists
Before we look at the different types of lists, let's discuss a tag that's used in every list in HTML. Every list uses the li tag. As you can see from the above program, this tag is used for every item in the list you're creating. There is no closing tag for the li tag. When you're finished typing a list item, hit the Enter key, put another li tag, and type the next item. Now let's start looking at the different lists by looking at the unordered list.

Lists
HTML supports several elements for making lists. They can be divided into two types: glossary lists, and regular lists. Glossary Lists are denoted by the element DL, while regular lists are denoted by the elements UL, OL, MENU and DIR. Lists can be nested. Thus you can have a regular list within a regular list, a regular list within a glossary list, and so on. Some examples are shown below.

Regular Lists
A regular list is a sequence of paragraphs, each of which may be preceded by a special mark, sequence number, or nothing at all. The syntax is…

Netscape Extensions to List Elements
Netscape introduced several "extension" attributes for list elements, all of which were subsequently integrated into standard HTML. Essentially all browsers now support these attributes.


Lists
LISTS are a great way of keeping your web page organized. There are unordered (bullet) lists, ordered (numbered) lists, and definition lists. When you use a list command, it will indent the information a bit making the list look organized and as a unit.

lists
Every once in a while it may be handy to show information in the form of a list. You do this with one of the LIST-tags. There are three kinds…

Creating unordered lists
To create an unordered list or bulleted list you need to use the UL and /UL tags at the beginning and the end of the list. To separate the single list items you use the LI and /LI tags.

Creating ordered lists
To create an ordered list or numbered list you need to use the OL and /OL tags at the beginning and the end of the list. To separate the single list items you use the LI and /LI tags.

Lists and Tables
Creating lists in HTML documets is simple. There are two types of lists Ordered Lists and Unordered Lists. Ordered Lists are created using ol tag and li sub tag. See the example…

HTML Lists Tutorials - OL ...
OL ... creates an ordered list. "Ordered" means that the order of the items in the list is important. To show this, browsers automatically number the list. Note in this example that the HTML does not give any numbers: the numbers are automatically made by the browser (which makes it easy on you the author).

 

HTML Lists Tutorials - UL ...
UL ... creates an unordered list. The unordered part means that the items in the list are not in any particular order. UL ... works with LI .... UL ... defines the list, LI ... defines each item in the list.

HTML Lists Tutorials - LI ...
LI ... indicates the start of a new line item within a list. LI ... can be used with OL ..., UL ..., and DIR ....

HTML Lists Tutorials - DIR ...
DIR ... indicates that the listing is a directory, such as a directory of a web site or of an organization. DIR ... works with LI ... in the same way UL ... does, and is generally rendered the same way.

HTML Lists Tutorials - MENU ...
MENU ... indicates the start a series of choices. It is usually rendered like UL ....

DL ...
DL ... was originally intended for (and is still very good for) making lists of terms and their definitions.

DT
DT is used in conjunction with DL ... and DD to create definition lists. DT is usually used as the first part of a DT/DD combination. So, for example, this code creates three pairs of terms and definitions for the terms.

DD
DD sets the description part of a term/description pair in a definition list.

Lists
While simple in concept, lists can be very powerful in execution. There are three types of lists: unordered lists, ordered lists, and definition lists. The first two are very similar in structure, while definition lists have a unique setup.

Lists
There are several types of list: Bulleted Lists, Numbered lists, Directory, Menu, Definition.

Creating Ordered & Unordered Lists
In this section of our free online web design course, we're going to learn how to form a list of items by using HTML. There are two types of lists you can create - the ordered list and the unordered list.

Lists
We've learned how to start a new line with the br tag. This comes in handy if you just have one or two items or sentences to start. What if you wanted a numbered list or a list with bullets or maybe had a string of terms with their definitions, what then? HTML has just what the doctor ordered, list building terms. There are three basic types of lists...

Lists example
Highlight the code you would like to have, select copy, paste it into your ".html" document or save it in notepad…

Definition Lists
The definition list is used to create a list of terms associated with their definitions, like a glossary.

Unordered List
The Unordered List is used to create a list of items, like the features of a product. This list is indented (always) and a bullet is placed in front of each item.

Ordered List
The OL /OL tag is used to create ordered lists or numbered lists, for lists like an outline. Like the UL tag the OL tag just allows for the LI tag inside of its contents.

Unordered, Ordered and Definition Lists
The UL element is the container for the entire Unordered List. The OL element is the container for the entire Ordered List. The LI element is used for each line of the list. The UL element is the container for the entire Definition List. The DL inline element is used to create a definition term, before each dd tag. The DD block element is used for each definition. Also see example...

Ordered lists
Ordered lists are numbered lists. Unordered lists have a bullet before each list item, Ordered lists have a number (or letter) before each list item.

Unordered lists
Unordered lists are lists that are not numbered. Unordered lists have a bullet before each list item, Ordered lists have a number (or letter) before each list item.

Using HTML Lists
Have you been wanting to add lists to your page? Well, here is the way to add those html lists to your web pages…

HTML List Tags Examples
The following are examples of Definition, Ordered, Unordered, Directory, Menu, Nested Lists.

Here you'll find out how to customise your lists along with the less less common list types, menu, definition and directories.

Lists
You can create a variety of lists in your document by using the UL, OL, MENU, and DIR tags in conjunction with the LI tag. You can also create definition lists which give you a simple two column list for terms and their definitions.

Creating Lists
Creating lists is easy, but first you need to determine what kind of list you want to make. In the tables below you'll see different kinds of lists in the left column and the code that makes 'em go in the right column. At the end you'll find definitions and some good-to-know keypoints.

HTML Lists
There are 3 different types of lists. Use ol for ordered lists, ul for unordered lists, and dl for definition lists. Use the type and start attributes to fine tune your lists accordingly…

DD: definition data
To provide a definition for a term in a definition list (DL element).

DL: definition list
To present a list of definitions for terms.

DT: definition term
To present a term in a definition list (DL element).

LI: list item
