From Wikibooks, open books for an open world

Illustrations, tables, charts, etc. should have captions or legends.

The "keep out trouble" rule is to use Microsoft Word's Insert…Caption function.

The "traditional" rule is in the Chicago Manual of Style section about this (11.24-43).

Bulleted Lists[edit]

Use a tab between the bullet and the first word. A space will vary in width, if your list has justified text.
