There are 2 main types of list on web pages. The first type is an ordered list, using numerals to denote list items.
Here is an example of using an ordered list to provide instructions for a task.
Unordered lists are widely used in web pages, particularily for listing hyperlinks. When styled and positioned with CSS they can act as navigation bars.
By default list items are denoted by a solid black circle, as follows in this example of a list of computer specifications.
Lists can also be nested, like so in a continuation of the PC specs
As noted above, lists are useful for organizing hyperlinks, making site navigation easier.
