The <list> tag describes a numbered or bulleted list, a definition list or a table.

Syntax

<list type="bullet" | "number" | "table">

   <listheader>

      <term>term</term>

      <description>description</description>

   </listheader>

   <item>

      <term>term</term>

      <description>description</description>

   </item>

</list>

The <listheader> block is used to define the heading row of a table.

Each item in the list is specified with an <item> block. When creating a definition list, you will need to specify both term and description. However, for a table, bulleted list, or numbered list, you only need to supply an entry for description.

A list or table can have as many <item> blocks as needed. Normally, the table can have only one column (using <term>) or two columns (using <term> and <description>). But you can extend this syntax and create the table with more columns.
