of several item
s, printed such that each item begins a new line
and is preceded by a bullet
character. A bulleted list is often indented
one tab stop
in from the surrounding text's left margin
Bulleted lists are commonly used when the items being listed are too long to practically fit in a single in-line sentence. They are also used in outlines and presentations, often to list alternatives or features. They are not recommended for use when listing the steps of a procedure; use a numbered list for that.
In HTML, a bulleted list may be generated with the unordered list tag, <UL>; each item is introduced with the list item tag, <LI>.
