Bullets

Bullets are a good way to present lists in a format that is scannable. When using bullets, capitalize the first letter of the first word that follows each bullet. Use a period at the end of the bullet item ONLY if the item is a full sentence. Otherwise don't use any punctuation. Don't use commas or semicolons at the end of bulleted items.

Example
