Styling Unordered and Ordered Lists
CSS has three individual properties and a shorthand property designed to style bulleted and numbered lists. Th
are listed in Table 10-1 .
Table 10-1 List Properties in CSS
Determines the type of symbol used. By default,
unordered lists use a solid disc, and ordered lists use
a number followed by a period (dot).
Controls whether the symbol or number is displayed as
a hanging indent (default) or nested inside the list item.
Allows you to use your own image in place of an
automatically generated symbol.

Shorthand property that lets you specify all properties
in a single declaration.
All properties in Table 10-1 are inherited, so the same values are used by nested lists unless you create
specic rules to override them.
