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


A term to define, which will be defined in text.
Either an item in a bullet or numbered list or the definition of a term.


The <listheader> block is used to define the heading row of either a table or definition list. When defining a table, you only need to supply an entry for term in the heading.

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

A list or table can have as many <item> blocks as needed.
