HTML and CSS Reference
Lists aren't just for bullets and numbers. With a little bit of CSS styling magic, the standard
unordered list can be transformed into a navigation bar, complete with background imagery
and interactive states. What's more, a completely different type of list used for definitions is
available to the HTML coder. This lesson explores all these facets of lists and more.

A navigation bar is typically a series of links to pages in a site, grouped in a horizontal or
vertical area. The links can be depicted either as plain text or text with imagery. Modern web
designers, for the most part, use unordered lists to create navigation bars for their sites. CSS is
often employed to change the appearance of the list to a series of navigation buttons or tabs, as
shown in Figure 15-1.
