Square Bullets...

<!--
<UL TYPE="square">
<LI>list 1
<LI>list 2
</UL>
-->

Numbers...

<!--
<OL>
<LI>list 1
<LI>list 2
</OL>

Roman Numerals...

WOW!!! when I came to yola I didn't know anything about html LOL! I'm learning a lot and trying to share the information I know.

Someone should research EVERY SINGLE aspect of creating a website and make a website about it. But in FULL DETAIL not like these brief blogs or websites you find out there. If someone can do this, and get the word out... you'll probably get a lot of traffic, I would do it but I'm into my current project.

Well there's a great site at www.w3schools.com that teaches HTML and many other things. I used it to learn everything I currently know about web development.

Donald your capital "OL" and "LI" is more work than necessary. they can use lowercase.

Great little tutorial for people who don't know.

Also if you want to start the Bullets at a different number I.e,

ol type="I" start="3" close it with brackets
That will make it start at the 3rd numeral instead of at the top.
It makes it easy to specify if you don't want the 1st 2 to have numerals.

One thing you'll learn about me is that I am probably the most inquisitive person you'll ever know. I never stop trying to learn... that was the main inspiration for my website.

the source of this information probably used capitals so letters such as L and I aren't mistaken.. l - lowercase L and I - uppercase I ... the source... http://www.htmlgoodies.com/tutorials/...

and also, when a bulleted list is created through buttons like on yola's tool bar I think it's automatically inserted as caps.

Maybe, but not necessary, lowercase will work fine. When your page is viewed in html(right click your home page, click view source) you will see your whole page in xhtml and its all in lowercase. Your browser parses the html and it is smart enough to know the difference, although it really doesn't care if its lowercase or not.

so anything in html can be lowercase or caps? I wasn't really sure if there was a reason they were in caps.

to be honest I would do it all lowercase. Since some things in XHTML are uppercase because they have to be, We don't want to confuse the browser. lol

oh really? sorry for the late reply... but hey, I'm about an hour away from you. My mom's boyfriend just bought me a dot com website instead of my dot info and paid for the website certification too (whatever that 'really' means).. it's not transferred over yet, but it's there.
