Bulleted Lists

Bulleted lists are by far the most widely used kind of list on the Web. Bulleted lists are flexible and fun, and easy to read. You can convert many long blocks of text into a bulleted list and make the text shorter, easier to read, and more interesting. If you have to move existing text to the Web, consider converting parts of it to bulleted lists as a quick way to make it more Web friendly.

Example

  • Bulleted List Item 1
  • Bulleted List Item 2
  • Bulleted List Item 3
  • Bulleted List Item 4

Bulleted List Options
