HTML Tutorial - Using Lists
(Page 3 of 12 )

Lists represents sequential placement of items or text. There are two types of lists in HTML. They are as follows

 Ordered List
 Unordered List

Ordered Lists are represented by <OL> tag and is numbered, and Unordered Lists are represented by <UL> tag and appear as bullets. Try out the code given below:

Listing 5

<OL>
<LI>Java
<LI>C++
</OL>

The above set of code produces an ordered list of languages. If you want these to appear in bullets, then you have to change only the <OL> tag to <UL> tag as shown below:

Listing 6

    <UL>
    <LI>Java
    <LI>C++
    </UL>

Applying Definition Lists

Definition Lists are similar to glossary lists. They are applied using the tags <DL> and <DT> as shown below in Listing 7.
