Help on Lists and Indentation

You can create different lists in a quite natural way. All you do is indent the line containing the list item with at least one space. To nest lists of different levels, you use different depths of indenting. All items on the same indent level belong to the same (sub-)list. That also means that you cannot change the style of a list after you started it.

1. Indentation

You can indent text with one or more spaces. This is especially useful if your are discussing on a wiki page and want to have some kind of thread level that is viewable


 If you indent text
  like this, then it is indented in the output
    you can have multiple levels of indent

Is displayed:

2. Unnumbered Lists

For a simple unnumbered(bulleted) list use the asterisk * "*". You can put linebreaks in the wiki markup of a list item by indenting the additional lines at the same level as the initial star that began the list item (without preceding it with an asterisk). If you want to make a line break inside a list simply use <<BR>> at the end of the term after which you like to see the break.


 * simple item
 this will be displayed on the same line
  * second level
 * another simple item <<BR>> and something that is displayed in a new line

Is displayed:


 . simple item without a bullet (no style)
  . second level

3. Numbered Lists

To get numbered list items, start it with a number template "1.", "a.", "A.", "i." or "I.". To start a numbered list with a certain initial value, append "#value" to the number template.


 1. first item
 1. second item
  1. second level

Is Displayed:

  1. first item
  2. second item
    1. second level

4. Definition Lists

Definition lists can be created by items of this form:

<whitespace>term:: definition


 term:: definition
 another term:: and its definition

Is Displayed:

another term
and its definition

5. Numbered Sections

Also list related but another thing is the possibilty to number the section headers. You can do this by adding a #pragma processing instruction to the header of the page. Add

#pragma section-numbers on

to the top of the page and your section headings are getting numbers starting from 1 (subsections are also getting numbers like 1.1, 1.2 and so on)

6. More Examples

  * Uppercase roman (with start offset 42)
    I.#42 forty-two
    I. forty-three
  * Lowercase alpha
