HTML offers a number of different ways to organize data. One kind of organization is called lists.

There are two kinds of lists:

  2. Lists
  3. Have
  4. Numbers
  5. Automatically
  6. Inserted
  7. In
  8. Front
  9. For
  10. You

To make ordered lists, write code like this:


Unordered lists

  • Unordered
  • Lists
  • Have
  • Bullets — •
  • Inserted
  • Instead

To make unordered lists, write code like this:

	<li>free of</li>

There are also times when you will want to use more than one heading size. In the first exercise, you used the <h1> to make large headings. You can also make progressively smaller headings by using other codes: <h2>, <h3>, <h4>. Try it out and see what happens!

<h1>I am a large heading!</h1>
<h2>I am a smaller heading!</h2>
<h3>I am even smaller...</h3>
