Lists[edit | edit source]

Lists.jpg

There are two kinds of lists.

  • Unordered Lists, in which items are listed in no particular order and are bulleted.
  • Ordered Lists, in which items are numbered for various reasons.

Unordered Lists[edit | edit source]

Unordered lists are created by putting an asterisk in front of each item on the list. And each item must be on a separate line and no gap between the asterisk and the left side of the page.

This is an example of the code:

*Item one
*Item two
*Item three


The unordered list will look like this when it is saved:

  • Item one
  • Item two
  • Item three

NOTICE that each item is on a separate line.
NOTICE that each item has a round "bullet" in front of it.

Ordered List[edit | edit source]

Order lists are created by putting a pound sign in front of each item on the list:

Here is the code:

# Item one
# Item two
# Item three


The ordered list will look like this when it is saved:

  1. Item one
  2. Item two
  3. Item three

NOTICE each item is on a separate line.
NOTICE each item has a number in front of it.
