Format lists to make them work well

The way you present lists can help or hinder people from using them easily. You want people to be able to connect the list with its introduction, see at a glance that you are giving a list, and find each list item easily. To help users do that,

• eliminate the space between the introduction and the list

• put a space between long items

• wrap lines under each other, not under the bullet

If some of your web users want to print the list, don't put it in a drop-down box.

For printing, put a long list in two columns, as shown in Figure 9-4.
