6.2. The itemizedlist

An itemizedlist is similar to the simplelist except that each entry contains a paragraph instead of just a short phrase, allowing you to put more varied content in your list. ItemizedLists can contain other lists.

Example 6-2. An itemizedlist


<itemizedlist>
<listitem><para>Apples - my favorite fruit.</para></listitem>
<listitem><para>Oranges - yummy, but sticky.</para></listitem>
<listitem><para>Bananas - they ripen too quickly!</para></listitem>
<listitem><para>Grapefruit - great when eaten in halves.</para></listitem>
<listitem><para>Black Beans - go well with rice.</para></listitem>
</itemizedlist>

The example will look something like this when converted:
