An ordered list
with an alternative
numbering style
and starting
As with the type attribute, you can change the value of an entry's number at any point in
a list. You do so by using the value attribute in the <li> tag. Assigning a value in an
<li> tag restarts numbering in the list starting with the affected entry.
Suppose that you wanted the last three items in a list of ingredients to be 10 , 11 , and 12
rather than 6 , 7 , and 8 . You can reset the numbering at Eggs using the value attribute, as
<h1> Cheesecake Ingredients </h1>
<li> Quark Cheese </li>
<li> Honey </li>
<li> Cocoa </li>
<li> Vanilla Extract </li>
<li> Flour </li>
<li value=“10”> Eggs </li>
<li> Walnuts </li>
<li> Margarine </li>
Unordered Lists
Unordered lists are often referred to as bulleted lists. Instead of being numbered, each
element in the list has the same marker. The markup to create an unordered list looks just
like an ordered list except that the list is created by using <ul>...</ul> tags rather than
ol . The elements of the list are placed within <li> tags, just as with ordered lists.
Browsers usually mark each item in unordered lists using bullets or some other symbol;
Lynx, a text browser, inserts an asterisk ( * ).
