### Fancy List-Markers

96.1
An optional style-file htmllist.sty has been provided which produces fancier lists in the electronic version of the document, such as this. This file defines a new LATEX environment htmllist, which causes a user-defined item-mark to be placed at each new item of the list, and which causes the optional description to be displayed in bold letters.

The mark is determined by the \htmlitemmark{<item-mark>} command. This command accepts either a mnemonic name for the <item-mark>, from a list of icons established at installation, or the URL of a mark not in the installation list. The command \htmlitemmark must be used inside the htmllist environment in order to be effective, but it may be used more than once to change the mark within the list. The item-marks supplied with LATEX2HTML are BlueBall, RedBall, OrangeBall, GreenBall, PinkBall, PurpleBall, WhiteBall and YellowBall. The htmllist environment is identical to the description environment in the printed version.

An example of its usage is:

\begin{htmllist}
\htmlitemmark{WhiteBall}%
\item[Item 1:] This will have a white ball.
\item[Item 2:] This will also have a white ball.
\htmlitemmark{RedBall}%
\item[Item 3:] This will have a red ball.
\end{htmllist}


This will produce:

Item 1:
This will have a white ball.
Item 2:
This will also have a white ball.
Item 3:
This will have a red ball.

One can also obtain LATEX2e style-files floatfig.sty and wrapfig.sty, which provide support for the floatingfigure and wrapfigure environments, respectively. These environments allow text to wrap around a figure in the printed version, but are treated exactly as an ordinary figures in the electronic version. They are described in The LATEX Companion.
