image of bulleted and ordered listsWhen a lot of information is presented, sometimes it is best to arrange it in a list format. Try to keep list items to a length of a couple sentences maximum, emphasizing your point.

Never use the tab key to create or edit the indent for list elements. Use the styling feature in your program.

Bulleted lists are also known as unordered lists and are used to note a group of similar item. Unordered lists are used when there is not an emphasis on the order of the items. 

Numbered lists are also known as ordered lists and are used for a sequence of items followed in a particular order. Use ordered lists anywhere you want to show a specific order for the list items to be followed, or to rank items sequentially. These lists are most often found in instructions and recipes.
