What Do They Do?
Lists are used to organize and render one or more data items with some relationship to each other. With a list structure, extra information is used to give some indication of the degree of relationship between the items.

But this extra information is not actually stored in the document itself, it is generated automatically when it is rendered. List structures generate two blocks for each item of rendered data - a box for each data item, along with a separate marker box for the visual list iteration object (such as a bullet, number, or image) that is created by the system. The list properties control the type and placement of the marker box in list contexts.
