In your HTML documents, you'll often need to make a list of items. And you can use bullet points for this purpose.

You can show bullet points with the Unicode character (or entity) for bullet points.

In this article, I will show you the Unicode and HTML entities for showing bullet points on a web page.

Towards the end of this article, I will also show you the 5-key combinations with which you can type a big dot symbol.

The Unicode and HTML Entities for Bullet Points

The Unicode character for showing the dot symbol or bullet point is U+2022.

But to use this Unicode correctly, remove the U+ and replace it with ampersand (&), pound sign (#), and x. Then type the 2022 number in, and then add a semi-colon. So, it becomes •.

It'll look like this:

<h1>Languages of the web</h1>
<h3>&#x2022; HTML</h3>
<h3>&#x2022; CSS</h3>
<h3>&#x2022; JavaScript</h3>
<h3>&#x2022; PHP</h3>


Apart from the &#x2022; Unicode character, you can also use &bull; and &#8226; HTML entitles to show bullets or dot symbols on the web page.

<h1>Languages of the web</h1>
<h3>&#8226; HTML</h3>
<h3>&bull; CSS</h3>
<h3>&#8226; JavaScript</h3>
<h3>&bull; PHP</h3>

The output remains the same:

The Keyboard Shortcut for Typing a Dot Symbol

To type the dot symbol on your keyboard, turn on the numeric keypad by pressing NumLk, hold Alt and press the 0, 1, 4, and 9 keys in succession.

If you don’t type the numbers with the numeric keypad, the dot symbol will not show.
