This tutorial shows different kinds of HTML lists. There are lists with bullets, numbers, etc...
Here are basic examples of lists, but it's possible to do everything that can be done in any word processor.

Numbers:

This list is also called to ordered list(ol), but I prefer numbered list. Tags that are used are ol and li.
