We user ordered lists and unordered lists all the time when developing websites. In fact you would be hard pressed to find a webpage on the internet that does not have some type of list items on it. It is very common to use and this is how you use it.
Ordered List Items *
For ordered list items we strt off with the tag of ol. It is written like this <ol></ol>. This is what will cause the ordered list to have numbers in it.
You do have to write list item tags when using the ordered list. Here is an example on how to do that.
<ol> <li>One</li> <li>Two</li> <li>Three</li> </ol>
Unordered List Items *
Sometimes we just need a bullet list. For that we will use the tag <ul></ul>. This will cause the list to have bullets in it.
We combine this with the list item tag to accomplish this objective. Here is an example.
<ul> <li>Bullet</li> <li>Bullet</li> <li>Bullet</li> </ul>
Exceptions For List Items *
Keep in mind that the CSS can control the way a list item looks. So if your list items do not look like this then you may want to check your style-sheet.
