Numbered and bulletted lists are very common in documents. The enumerate and itemize environments are used for creating such lists. Thus, a numbered list begins with \begin{enumerate} and ends with \end{enumerate}. The items of the list go between these. The start of each item should be marked with the command \item, which can be thought of as generating the item number. \begin{itemize} and \end{itemize} are used in exactly the same way to create bulletted lists. Lists can be nested inside one another, and LATEX will indent the lists properly to show the nesting. For numbered lists, the style of numbering (numbers, letters, or roman numerals) changes depending on the level of nesting.
