<ol>

The <ol> element represents an ordered list of items.

Syntax

<ol>
  <li><!-- Content here --></li>
</ol>

By default, each list item is prepended with a number marker. However, this can be changed to ordered letters or Roman numbers with the type attribute (ideal for legal or technical documentation).

Ordered lists can also appear unordered if a CSS rule like list-style-type: disc; is applied.

Example

<ol>
<li>Preheat oven to 325&deg; F 👩‍🍳</li>
<li>Drop cookie dough 🍪</li>
<li>Bake for 15 min ⏰</li>
</ol>

Each list item appears numbered by default:
