Research - Lists & Menus:



Question 1:

Having user-friendly navigation is an important element for websites. Navigation is one of the most essential elements of a website, allowing your users to find the information they need quickly, and efficiently. The best way to create compact and user-friendly navigation is to implement a CSS menu using HTML and a CSS stylesheet for menu customization. CSS menus are very flexible and fully customizable, allowing a web designer to create custom menus that offer the navigation assessibility and design feel to really set a webpage out from the pack. Using CSS, one can create dynamic and eye-popping navigation that works flawlessly and allows a designer to put a large amount of navigation into a very compact area, making for a professional website design.

Lists are often used to sort elements into categories or display list items. There are many ways you can customize lists. They can be numbered or listed with checkboxes, icons, or bullet points of any style, or no bullets at all. One can add or remove the tab margin as desired (see below).
