Lists are the natural format for navigation, as it is in effect .... a

Of course you can add style to your list which means you can bypass the
standard block display style and have linear, non-bulleted lists.  In
fact the possibilities are only as limited as your imaginativeness with
CSS.

The following article, Taming lists with CSS is a great resource for
using lists in navigation:

yes, it's a bulletpoint = a printable character.  on
top of that it's good structural markup which fits the
purpose.
