Windows 7: HTML in notepad

Yeah, use Notepad++
It's free, and it's amazing. Or if you can afford it, and you do a lot of coding, or are going to be doing a lot of coding and want a more powerful, easier-to-use editor, go with Adobe Dreamweaver, which is what I use.

But in regard to your question, instead of a blockquote or a br tag, if you want the formatting to look neater, go with a definition list.

Code:
<dl>
 <dt>This would be your primary statement</dt>
      <dd>This would be the substatement</dd>
 <dt> This would be your second primary statement</dt>
      <dd>This would be your second substatement</dt>
 <dt>Item</dt>
      <dd>Item definition</dt>
 <dt>Coffee</dt>
      <dd>Black hot drink</dd>
 <dt>Milk</dt>
      <dd> white cold drink</dd>
</dl>
Also, use the W3 HTML validator to check all your work

Edit: keep it simple, actually. No need for a list when there are not icons! Just have line breaks.

to creepinjesus:
what u put as code is what i ended up doing with it after i looked it up

to benjamin hall:
my professor is restricting us to only text editors for HTML, even though i do agree that dreamweaver is great for coding.
he also wants it to look like what creepinjesus did in his code when viewed in IE

Honestly, my web1 instructor wants us to only use a text editor too...
But I just did it all in Adobe Dreamweaver, and then copied the code out and pasted it into Notepad...

Just as you created an ordered list, you can create an unordered list. If you don't want bullets, you can create a description list.

HTML Code:
<dl>
<dt><h3>Ingredients</h3></dt>
<dd>1/2 cup butter</dd>
<dd>1/3 cup white sugar</dd>
<dd>1/4 tsp vanilla extract<dd>
<dd>1 cup all purpose flour<dd>
<dd>1 (8 oz) package of cream<dd>
(etc etc)
</dl>

btw its not a description list those are definition tags for a definition list, and my professor told us how it is to look and how to treat the text (what he didnt tell us is what tags to use to get it to look a certain way)

Well if he wants it to look a certain way but didn't specify a tag, I'd treat it as open season and do whatever I felt like doing
