Don't actually know what hollow bullets are. I assume that they are fancy
bullets that have a little white space inside. I'd think that you'd only
want to use them in some marketing collateral and never in documentation.
Documentation is supposed to look boring. The very nature of it is boring.
The advantage to this though is that the mind is not distracted by glitzy
details. And so, when you read a document that has kind of a boring look to
it, you can concentrate on the details of the facts.
But for some piece of marketing collateral, the purpose is entirely
different. 'Look at me' Buy my product' are some of the things that it
should communicate.

...could count on both a wealth of knowledge and a wealth of opinion, both
of which I find valuable and useful. Another issue on which I would like
your input is the use of hollow bullet symbols in curriculum documentation.
What do you think about the use of hollow bullets and why?
