Usability – Character used to set the default list item

If I want to set an item in a text-only list as the default, is there a default character or symbol that I can use?

I was thinking about it *but it is often used to label changed items, so I hesitate to use it in my case.

Another way is to use the word "default" or "def", but I prefer something shorter:

  • Item 1
  • Point 2 (standard)
  • point 3
