In Depth Information
You can draw attention to lists of information by using bullets or numbers. Bulleted and numbered
lists can help you present your information in an organized way. A bulleted list adds dots or other
similar symbols in front of each list item, whereas a numbered list adds sequential numbers or letters
in front of each list item. As a general rule, use bullets when the items in your list do not follow any
particular order and use numbers when the items in your list follow a particular order.
You can create a list as you type it or after you have typed list elements.
