Lists

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

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

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.
