This template provides a WCAG/ISO-standards-compliant accessible alternative to <br /> separated lists, per WP:UBLIST and WP:PLIST

Usage[edit source]

{{plainlist}} starts a plain (i.e. unbulleted) list, such as:

It uses proper HTML list markup, which is more standards-compliant and more accessible than separating list items with Inyandikorugero:Tag. Detailed reasons for using this template can be found at WP:UBLIST.

This template can be used with or without {{endplainlist}}. It is an alternative to {{unbulleted list}}, which performs the same function in a more concise but less wiki-style manner. Note that {{unbulleted list}} will work inside image captions, whereas {{plainlist}} does not.
