The list tag is used to make lists. It has two attributes:

  • id - a unique ID, required
  • list-type - defines the formatting of the list. list-type takes the values bulleted (default), enumerated , named-item or inline
The list tag has two children: title , which is optional, and item , which is where the list information is stored.

Example list

<list id='marinade' list-type='enumerated'><title>Beer Marinade</title><item>pour beer into large bowl</item><item>add chili powder to taste</item><item>squeeze half lime into beer marinade</item><item>place steak in beer, let soak for 30 minutes</item></list> The resulting list will look like:

    Beer marinade

  1. pour beer into large bowl
  2. add chili powder to taste
  3. squeeze half lime into beer marinade
  4. place steak in beer, let soak for 30 minutes

New list types example

CNXML 0.6 gives you much more control over the list environment. Now you will be able to choose from eight preset bullet styles as well as an option that allows you to choose your own literal text to serve as the bullet style. The enumerated list type now offers several styles, including Arabic numerals, upper and lower case alphabet characters, and also upper and lower case Roman numerals. In addition to these changes, you can now also select to have your lists follow a stepwise progression. In CNXML 0.6 the named-item list has been slightly altered, and is now called a labeled-item list. As you may have guessed, the change is quite intuitive. Instead of using<name>to specify the item's label, you use<label>.

Here is an example of a stepwise enumerate list: <list id="eip-165" list-type="enumerated" number-style="arabic" class="stepwise"><title>Beer Marinade</title><item>pour beer into large bowl</item><item>add chili powder to taste</item><item>squeeze half lime into beer marinade</item><item>place steak in beer, let soak for 30 minutes</item></list> The resulting list will look like:

    Beer marinade

  • pour beer into large bowl
  • add chili powder to taste
  • squeeze half lime into beer marinade
  • place steak in beer, let soak for 30 minutes


The equation tag is used to set off and number equations in CNXML documents by using ASCII text, MathML and embedded media to display math.

It is strongly encouraged, however, to use equation with MathML tags when displaying math.

Ascii text and images

The first child of equation is an optional title followed by any number of media tags.

<equation id="eqn14"><title>Euler's Relation</title><media id="equation-example" display="block" alt="Euler's Relation."><image mime-type='image/gif' src='euler.gif' /></media></equation> <equation id='eqn15'><title>Simple Arithmetic</title>11+27=38</equation> This equation will display as:

Simple arithmetic

You could also write this equation using MathML: <equation id="eqn22"><m:math><m:mn>11</m:mn><m:mo>+</m:mo><m:mn>27</m:mn><m:mo>=</m:mo><m:mn>38</m:mn></m:math></equation>


The definition tag is used to define a word in a CNXML document. It has a required id attribute and three children: term , meaning and example . How to use definition is a little confusing, so don't forget to check out [link] .

hae everyone, hope you are well this evning my question is what is the difference between drive and motivation
good question
drive is more like an impulse or urge and i think they both go together (drive and motivation) even if there is a slight difference
@ Michael Drive is delivered to be innate without the use of an external stimuli, motivation normally evolves an outside stimuli which may include praise, appreciate, or reward.
*believed...sorry for typo
@Reginald, can't the motivation come from the inner self?
Good question, please give an example.

the biggest problem with scientific research and data is that ya you could get the same result 1000 times then it could go the other way 1000 times, but we would never know that and we did, we would still say ya but the proof is there. The only thing science proves is that humanity has
no facts about human behavior in the scientific context, but more in the trial and error.. sorry to tell you, but so far no one has proven Father of anything, thats up to you and i, judgement is bias, science is good enough lazy

Anyone knows about Techno-fascism?

Ecofascism is a theoretical political model in which an authoritarian government would require individuals to sacrifice their own interests to the "organic whole of nature". The term is also used as a rhetorical pejorative to undermine the environmental movement.
what's the big difference between prejudice and discrimination?
Danice Reply
A prejudiced person may not act on their attitude.  Therefore, someone can be prejudiced towards a certain group but not discriminate against them.  Also, prejudice includes all three components of an attitude (affective, behavioral and cognitive), whereas discrimination just involves behavior
