Subsection 4.11.7 Examples of Lists

To illustrate this section, we offer three too-elaborate examples. Take these as compact examples of what is possible, and not best practice in your writing. We also use these to illustrate cross-references to list items, see Subsection 4.5.6.
We have a paragraph that begins with anonymous list of species that live in water (maybe partially), which necessarily is placed inside a paragraph. The roman numerals purposely do not have any extra adornment in the version (but may for HTML output).
  1. Amphibians
    1. Frog
    2. Salamander
    3. Newt
    4. Toad
  2. Freshwater Sport Fish
    1. Walleye
    2. Bass
    3. Exquisite Fish.
  3. Saltwater Sport Fish
    1. Salmon
    2. Halibut
    3. Marlin
Within the same paragraph, we transition to an unordered, two-column, list of some germs:
  • Bacteria
    • Staphylococci
    • Streptococci
    • Salmonella
  • Viruses
    • Varicellovirus
    • Orthopoxvirus
This sentence concludes our (small) paragraph on small and large organisms.
A named list, only to test cross-references.
