Synopsis

<LI>...</LI>

End Tag: Optional

The LI element is a single list item that is nested inside an OL or UL list container. The outer container determines whether the LI item is preceded with a number or letter (indicating sequence within an order) or a symbol that doesn’t connote any particular order. A special category of style sheet attributes are devoted to list formatting. Therefore, a number of formatting attributes for LI, OL, and UL elements are deprecated in HTML 4.0.

If you apply a style sheet rule to an LI element to adjust the color in Navigator 4, only the leading symbol is colored. To color the text as well, wrap the LI element inside a SPAN element and apply the style to the SPAN element. This works the same way in Navigator and Internet Explorer.

Example

<UL>
    <LI>Larry
    <LI>Moe
    <LI>Curly
</UL>
