What Is the Use of the "ul" HTML Element?

In HTML, "ul" stands for "unordered list". When you add the "<ul>" HTML element to a webpage, it creates a container element for an unordered list which can be used for grouping and displaying a list of related items.

The <ul> HTML element is typically paired with one or more "<li>" (list item) elements, which are used to define individual items within the list. Each <li> element represents a separate item in the list.

For example, the following HTML markup creates an unordered list with three list items:

  <li>Item 1</li>
  <li>Item 2</li>
  <li>Item 3</li>

The browser will typically display the list with bullet points, for example, like so:

  • Item 1
  • Item 2
  • Item 3

You can use CSS to further customize the appearance of the unordered list, such as changing the bullet style, adjusting the spacing, or applying different colors.
