HTML Basics-LISTS tag, type of lists and the unordered list

There are three types of lists in the HTML, Ordered list, unorderedlist or definition or description list. These lists define a block structure of the document and are block formatting elements. Some HTML attributes like  style, type may be used. If the list is to be displayed horizontal the css property display:inline may also be used. Some other HTML elements like <dt>, <dd> may also be used to describe the term and description.  The details of the tags used in all the three types of the lists and elements commonly used with them are mentioned below in brief –
