HTML List Item Tutorial

The list item tag defines a list item for ordered and unordered lists.

An ordered list is one where each item is preceded by an alphanumeric indicator. An unordered list is where each item is preceded by a bullet character.

Here's is a simple example of an ordered and an unordered list:

Ordered List

  1. Item One
  2. Item Two
  3. Item Three

Unordered List

  • Item One
  • Item Two
  • Item Three

Here is the code for those two lists:

Ordered List

<li>Item One</li>
<li>Item Two</li>
<li>Item Three</li>

Unordered List

<li>Item One</li>
<li>Item Two</li>
<li>Item Three</li>

Using CSS you can change the list markers for both ordered lists and unordered lists. I have a tutorial showing how linked up below.
