Usage[edit]

{{Plainlist}} starts a plain, or unbulleted, list, such as:

It uses proper HTML list markup, which is more standards-compliant and more accessible than separating list items with <br />.

Parameters[edit]

  • hanging-indent – indents the list items with a "hanging indent". Option are 1em or 2em
  • indent – indents the entire list by a number of standard indents (one indent being 1.6em), particularly handy for inclusion in an indented discussion thread.
Example: |indent=2
  • lead — Adds vertical whitespace at the start of a list. (Name is from leading in printing.
  • style – adds CSS style options.
Example: |style=border:solid 1px silver; background:lightyellow
This CSS style adds a solid silver border around the list, 1 pixel thick, and sets the background color of the list to light yellow.
Example: |style=margin-left:2em; text-indent:-2em
This CSS style creates a "hanging indent" style list often seen in the index of a book.
  • class — adds extra CSS classes
