Select the text that you want to become a bulleted list (type this
text in with a full Return after each line – it will appear double-
spaced, but the next step will change that).
In the Inspector, look at the bottom of the left-most pane, and you
should see a disclosure triangle next to List. Open this up and click
the Indent button. This will turn the paragraphs you just typed into
a list, and from there you can modify its appearance further.

counter to standard word processing and desk top publishing! Tsk Tsk Tsk
But standard for web top publishing… kst kst kst.
If you just want a bullet, type option-8. You may need to play with
the format of the bullet character to get the appearance you want,
which is quite normal for print-based DTP design.
However, if you want a list structure in a web page then you’re
talking about a logical list structure, not just a display of dots
and characters arranged to look like a list. This difference is
important for many things, from content display conmtrol to
accessibility access and search engine indexing.
Yes, I tend to be stuck somewhere in-between letterpress, layout, word processing, desk top publishing and web design. Not to mention is it a Mac of a PC? I won’t even go near Linux for fear my head will explode.
