Lists and Indenting

Create bulleted and numbered lists is easy and intuitive. All you do is inserting the line containing the list item. To get bulleted items, start the item with space and an asterisk " *"; to get numbered items, start it with a space and a number template " 1.", " a.", " A.", " i." or " I.". Anything else will just indent the line. To start a numbered list with a certain initial value, append "#value" to the number template.

To nest lists of different levels, you use different depths of indenting. All items on the same indent level belong to the same (sub-)list. That also means that you cannot change the style of a list after you started it.

Definition lists can be created by items of the form <whitespace>term:: definition; note that the term cannot currently contain any wiki markup.

For more information on the possible markup, see Help on Editing.
