Lesson Seven: Creating an Itemised List

We will start with a simple example

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item One rope coloured red
\item One long bent thing with a lump on the end
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

Download: latsam7a.tex

This would produce the following list...

  • One rope coloured red
  • One long bent thing with a lump on the end

Next, an example showing nested itemisation

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item Wizard’s Equipment
\begin{itemize}
\item [$\Delta$] One rope coloured red
\item [$\Delta$] One long bent thing with a lump on the end
\end{itemize}
\item Warrior’s Equipment
\begin{itemize}
\item [$\dagger$] One big sharp pointy thing
\item [$\dagger$] One flat round thing
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

Download: latsam7b.tex

The above the example would produce the following output...

  • Wizard’s Equipment
    • One rope coloured red
    • One long bent thing with a lump on the end
  • Warrior’s Equipment
    • One big sharp pointy thing
    • One flat round thing

For browsers that do not support CSS1, the preceding example should look like this image.

This concludes lesson 7.
