Tips for presenting bulleted list or numbered list

  • Introduce a list with a clear descriptive phrase.
  • Try to write list sentences with similar syntax construction and approximately same line lengths.
    Using the same writing style and about the same number of words for each item will make the list appear more uniform. If the list items are sentences, then capitalize the first word of every list item and use ending punctuation. If the list items are phrase fragments, it’s not mandatory to capitalize the first word, but it’s recommended to ease the reading. Do not use any end punctuation after each item. Avoid repeating the same word(s) at the beginning of each list item.
  • Use numbered lists only when the sequence or count of items are important.
    Ordered lists (In HTML, the <ol> tag defines an ordered list) are usually reserved for instances in which the items must occur in a specific order, such as steps in a procedure, or when keeping count is important, such as a top 7 list. If the order or the final count of the list items does not matter, don’t number them (In HTML, the <ul> tag defines an unordered list) because doing so creates confusion, people erroneously thought that they had to complete all steps in a mandatory numbered list, when sometimes they only needed to choose some options among the list.

Vertical lists attract the eye and make each list element stand out on its own. Thus, they are more effective than inline lists at making key points easier to scan, reference, and understand. But, don’t overuse bulleted lists, as they can lose their effectiveness. The best is the enemy of good, perfect is the enemy of good.
