By: FYIcenter.com

(Continued from previous topic...)

What Is a "ul" Tag/Element?

A "ul" element is block level element that can be used to define an un-ordered list, where items are displayed with leading bullets. Here are basic rules about "ul" elements:

  • "ul" elements are block level elements.
  • "ul" elements can not have text contents.
  • An "ul" element must have one or more "li" elements as sub-elements.
  • Each "li" element will be displayed by browsers as a paragraph with a leading bullet.

Below is a good tutorial example of "ul" elements:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  <title>Un-ordered Lists</title>
  <p>Random quotations:</p>
  <li>The best advice is this: Don't take advice 
   and don't give advice.</li>
  <li>Attitude is a little thing that makes 
   a big difference.</li>
  <li>When dealing with people, remember you are 
   not dealing with creatures of logic, 
   but creatures of emotion.</li>

If you save the above document as unordered_list.html, and view it with Internet Explorer, you will see a list of items with leading bullets as shown below:
