What is Bulleted List?

A bulleted list is an unordered list of items where every item has a graphical bullet. The bullets may be characters of different fonts, as well as graphical icons.

Bulleted lists help the author structure the text in a better way - provide a list of application components, list of usage scenarios, etc. When the order of elements is not important and you don't need to refer to a list element later in the text, it's good to use bulleted lists. They help avoid the perception of the elements order importance.

When the order of elements is important (instruction steps, list of itemns ordered by importance), you can use a numbered list instead.
