Expand list when clicking on text

P: 5
I'm not a programmer, so hope someone can help me. I need to get a lot of information on a web page and want to make it so a list can be expanded when clicking on the text, then collapsed again.

What would the HTML code be for something like this...
1. Click here for list
a. first item
b. second item
c. third item

2. Do this action
a. first do this
b. then do this

But when the page loads, you only see
1. Click here for list
2. Do this action

Does my question make sense? Can someone help me? It needs to be HTML code.

Thanks so much.

You can't do this with just HTML, you'll have to learn javascript.

It would toggle the visibility of the divs using the on click event.

Okay - one thing I am good at is web searching. I found a code that will work, but I need some help with formatting. There are several levels that I need to display. The website-building program I use helps me with the code too. I will attach it all here.

There should be a Title before this list starts, but I wasn't sure where or how to put that in.

Is there a way to format the text so that it appears indented, hanging indent?

I appreciate any help you can give.

Please use code tags when posting code.

You can use the margin-left style to indent the items in the div that you want to indent. You can find an example here
