The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: easylist Author's name: Paul Isambert Location on CTAN: / Summary description: Customizable lists using a single active character. License type: lppl Announcement text:
The code has been totally rewritten. Improvements: * You may now have as many counters and levels as you like (up to TeX's limitation) * Several new parameters: - Hanging of the item text from its counter - Alignment of items with counters of different sizes - Progressive indentation of the list - Vertical space between items - Space between counters and items - Hidden counters, e.g. a) instead of 2.1.a) - Embedding of counters in a command - Zapf's Dingbats available to denote numbers * Predefined styles * Referring to item's with LaTeX's \label and \ref * \NewList or \NewList(key=value...) to get rid of previous parameters and create new ones * The keyval package is not required anymore * The environment have been (somewhat sensibly) renamed 'easylist' * Various modifications (the documentation have been revised accordingly)

easylist – Lists using a single active character

This package allows you to create lists of numbered items (as in Wittgenstein’s ‘Tractatus’) with a single active character as the only command. A variety of parameters are available to configure the appearance of the list; lists may be nested (effectively to unlimited depth).
