Proper use of lists is an accessibility best practice. When you have content that makes semantic sense as a list, use the list buttons instead of simply using line breaks. Conversely, lists should not be used for formatting non-list content such as a single mailing address.
To create a list, place your cursor in the WYSIWYG field and select the WYSIWYG button for a bullet (unordered) or numbered (ordered) list. While your cursor is inside a list, the Enter key will create new list items. To create a line break within a list item, use the Shift+Enter key combination.
To convert a bulleted list into a numbered list or vice versa, select the entire list in the WYSIWYG and click the appropriate list button. To convert any list back into unformatted text content, select the entire list and click the list button that's already applied to the list.
To create nested lists, use the indent and outdent buttons in the expanded toolbar.
The list properties button in the expanded toolbar allows you to change the bullet or number style. To change list properties, place your cursor in the WYSIWYG field and select the list properties button (note: only placing your cursor in the list will allow you to do this; selecting the entire list will not.)
Available list styles for unordered lists are Disc, Circle, and Square. Styles for ordered lists are Decimal, Uppercase letters, Lowercase letters, Uppercase Roman numerals, and Lowercase Roman numerals. You can also set the start item for a numbered list.
Additional List Styles
There are two additional styles that can be added to lists: a style with no bullets, and a Berkeley Brand style. See Optional Styles for more information.
