This and That HTML Page Five

One day you're bound to want to make a list on a web page. Maybe numbered, maybe not or bullets to set off the list. These work will on any pages you might create to show off recipes!

I'm going to grab a Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from my site for these examples. First, unordered list with bullets for the ingredients, then ordered list for the mixing/baking instructions:

Chocolate Chip Cookies With Walnuts 


  1. Have all ingredients at room temperature. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt: set aside.
  3. In large mixer bowl, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla: beat until creamy. You can't Over beat this.
  4. Beat in eggs.
  5. Gradually add flour mixture. Don't Over Mix! This is what will toughen or harden your cookies. Don't break the flour gluten down.
  6. Stir in Chocolate Chips and Walnuts.
  7. To keep from burning the bottom of your cookies or over baking, double pan!
  8. Drop out mixture with a tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets or pan. I prefer jelly roll pans, as cookie sheets are too thin.

  9. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes. Start checking cookies after 9 minutes. They will take about a minute longer to bake using double pans.
  10. Allow to cool before removing from pan to wax paper or foil. Allow Pan to cool before reusing to keep raw cookie dough from spreading.
  11. These keep about 5 days in a sealed container or zip bag. If they start to dry out, place a half a slice of bread in with them.

 

Here's the code, it looks long and involved, but it's really just the same two tags over and over (Note: I've allowed extra spacing to make this easier to read):

There's also a way to create an unmarked list, but I feel that with the effort involved, just use blockquote tags or a simple table instead:

Chocolate Chip Cookies With Walnuts

 

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
Etc....

 

Here's a small part of the code, just open the blockquote tag, type, then close the tag.

<center>
<b>

</center>

<blockquote><blockquote>
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

</blockquote></blockquote>
