4. Lists

It's often useful to indent your text, or make lists.

How do I indent text?

Tutorial 4

indents and lists can improve your page

  • To indent text, you start the line with one or more colons (:)

:This will be indented,
::This will be indented further,
:::The more colons, the larger the indent.

This will give you:

This will be indented,
This will be indented further,
The more colons, the larger the indent.

How do I make bulleted lists?

Bullets are made in a very similar way. But this time they use asterisks (*). The more asterisks you use, the bigger the indent.

*This gives a bullet,
*If you go onto the next line, the bulleted list continues,
**Just as with colons, the more asterisks, the bigger the indent.

This will give you:

  • This gives a bullet
  • If you go onto the next line, the bulleted list continues.
    • Just as with colons, the more asterisks, the bigger the indent.

How do I make numbered lists?

Numbers use the number sign or hash symbol (#). If you use more than one hash, you can make sub-lists.

#Numbers work in the same way,
#Go onto the next line to carry on the list,
##Two or more number signs will give you sub-items,
##You can carry on with the sub numbers...
#Or go back to the original list.

This will give you:

  1. Numbers work in the same way
  2. Go onto the next line to carry on the list
    1. Two or more number signs will give you sub-items
    2. You can cary on with the sub numbers...
  3. Or go back to the original list.
