What is an Icon List?

An icon list is a visually enhanced list that combines text with icons to present information more engagingly and attractively. Unlike traditional lists, icon lists utilize small graphical symbols alongside each list item, making the content easier to scan.

Icons can represent various concepts or actions, adding context and highlighting key points. This makes icon lists particularly effective for highlighting features, steps, benefits, or any information that you want to stand out.
