lists VS links in headers

Posted 27 June 2020 - 07:30 PM

can someone point me to a website where I can understand why UL's and LI's are now used for most website navigation operations? I've seen many use simple anchors and others use lists. I am no expert in CSS but I understand that it has a ton of resources inside of it to do this work. I am not a designer, I am a data person. I have also read that <nav> in HTML5 is what is supposed to be used in this day in age, but according to my tests it does nothing more than what was previously done in HTML pre-5.0. thanks.

Menus are, at their core, glorified lists. A collection of text, with the possible collection in a level below them, that all have a singular root. Like a tree. It's a logical conclusion that CSS that gussies up stuff would lean into a list collection.
