My favorites that you don't mention are:
<blockquote> to set an indented block of text.</blockquote>
<UL> And those can be nested to get different levels of bullets.

There is also the numbered list started by <:OL>:

  1. <LI>one
  2. <LI>two
  3. <LI>three
  4. <LI>four</OL>

Pinging so this goes into my list.

If anyone sees this and can explain how FR bookmarks work, please let me know. (Is it the same as what shows up in the ping lists? Is it the same as bookmarking using the browser? I'm just not sure...)
