<list> List

Sequence of two or more items, which may or may not be ordered.


The @list-type attribute specifies whether there should be a prefix preceding each item and determines the prefix type (such as bullet or number). The @prefix-word attribute can be used to prepend a word such as “Step”, “Method”, or “Procedure” to a list item, in addition to, typically, a number (thus “Step 1.”).
