Re: List formats
But now, I'm doubting everything about my lists. Shouldn't unordered lists
be bulleted, and ordered lists numbered? I know that there are variables in
list styles--consistency is the key--but I sure would appreciate the opinion
of some veteran writers on this matter.
Lists where the order of the items doesn't matter
should use a bullet; lists where the order is
important should use ordinal numbers.
As for the glyph used for the bullet, I'd say
use the most unobtrusive glyph possible but I
don't think there are any rules about it. I'd
try to convince the reviewer that while arrows
might be appropriate for a slide presentation,
they are likely to be distracting in printed text.
