Indents and Lists
In common with word processors, Wikitext allows the use of paragraph indents and various kinds of bullet and numbered lists. The few examples below show how it is done.
Indents are broadly similar to the idea of tabs on a word processor, though they can be used only at the start of a line.
Numbered lists find use in formal listings such as legal documents, and in specifications and other texts where paragraph reference numbers might be quoted. Bullets are much used in lists of hyperlinks, and in many summaries.
An introduction to HTML lists has been included, since this method alone allows the use of the alphabet and Roman numbers for list labels.
