Numbered lists in HTML

Tech Computer Center logo

The <ol>...</ol> construct is used to set up numbered lists of items. Here is an example:

  1. Soak one cup of dried garbanzos overnight in 5 cups of water.
  2. Bring to a boil in the soaking water.
  3. Cook for one hour or until tender.

Here is the general form:

  <ol><li>text1<li>text2...</ol>
For example, the above example might look like this in source form:
<ol>
  <li>Soak one cup of dried garbanzos overnight in
     five cups of water.
  <li>Bring to a boil in the soaking water.
  <li>Cook for one hour or until tender.
</ol>
