@itemize command produces sequences of indented
paragraphs, with a bullet or other mark inside the left margin
at the beginning of each paragraph for which such a mark is desired.
Begin an itemized list by writing
@itemize at the beginning of
a line. Follow the command, on the same line, with a character or a
Texinfo command that generates a mark. Usually, you will write
@itemize, but you can use
@minus, or any character or any special symbol that results in
a single character in the Info file. (When you write
@minus after an

@bullet produces an `*' in

@itemize @bullet @item Some text for foo. @item Some text for bar. @end itemize
- Some text for foo.
- Some text for bar.
Itemized lists may be embedded within other itemized lists. Here is a list marked with dashes embedded in a list marked with bullets:
@itemize @bullet @item First item. @itemize @minus @item Inner item. @item Second inner item. @end itemize @item Second outer item. @end itemize
- First item.
- Inner item.
- Second inner item.
- Second outer item.
