There were two attributes commonly used with HTML
ul tag. However, they both have been deprecated in HTML5. We recommend using CSS properties instead.
compact made the list appear in a more compact style. The exact look would depend on the browser:
<ul compact> <li>First item</li> <li>Second item</li> <li>Third item</li> </ul>
Note: instead of compact, use CSS line-height property.
type identified the kind of marker to be used in the HTML bullet list - a
disc, or a
<ul type="square"> <li>First item</li> <li>Second item</li> <li>Third item</li> </ul>
Note: instead of type, use CSS list-style-type property.
