HTML Lists

Description

HTML offers web authors three ways for specifying lists of information. All lists must contain one or more list elements. Lists may contain −

  • <ul> − An unordered list. This will list items using plain bullets.

  • <ol> − An ordered list. This will use different schemes of numbers to list your items.

  • <dl> − A definition list. This arranges your items in the same way as they are arranged in a dictionary.

HTML Unordered Lists

An unordered list is a collection of related items that have no special order or sequence. This list is created by using HTML <ul> tag. Each item in the list is marked with a bullet.

Example

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Unordered List</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <ul>
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ul>
   </body>
   
</html>

This will produce the following result −

The type Attribute

You can use type attribute for <ul> tag to specify the type of bullet you like. By default, it is a disc. Following are the possible options −

<ul type = "square">
<ul type = "disc">
<ul type = "circle">

Example

Following is an example where we used <ul type = "square">

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Unordered List</title>
   </head>

   <body>
      <ul type = "square">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ul>
   </body>

</html>

This will produce the following result −

Example

Following is an example where we used <ul type = "disc"> −

 

<!DOCTYPE html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Unordered List</title>

   <body>
      <ul type = "disc">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ul>
   </body>

</html>

This will produce the following result −

Example

Following is an example where we used <ul type = "circle"> −

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Unordered List</title>
   </head>

   <body>
      <ul type = "circle">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ul>
   </body>
	
</html>

This will produce the following result −

HTML Ordered Lists

If you are required to put your items in a numbered list instead of bulleted, then HTML ordered list will be used. This list is created by using <ol> tag. The numbering starts at one and is incremented by one for each successive ordered list element tagged with <li>.

Example

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Ordered List</title>
   </head>

   <body>
      <ol>
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ol>
   </body>

</html>

This will produce the following result −

The type Attribute

You can use type attribute for <ol> tag to specify the type of numbering you like. By default, it is a number. Following are the possible options −

<ol type = "1"> - Default-Case Numerals.
<ol type = "I"> - Upper-Case Numerals.
<ol type = "i"> - Lower-Case Numerals.
<ol type = "A"> - Upper-Case Letters.
<ol type = "a"> - Lower-Case Letters.

Example

Following is an example where we used <ol type = "1">

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Ordered List</title>
   </head>

   <body>
      <ol type = "1">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ol>
   </body>

</html>

This will produce the following result −

Example

Following is an example where we used <ol type = "I">

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Ordered List</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <ol type = "I">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ol>
   </body>
	
</html>

This will produce the following result −

Example

Following is an example where we used <ol type = "i">

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   
   <head>
      <title>HTML Ordered List</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <ol type = "i">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ol>
   </body>
	
</html>

This will produce the following result −

Example

Following is an example where we used <ol type = "A" >

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Ordered List</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <ol type = "A">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ol>
   </body>
	
</html>

This will produce the following result −

Example

Following is an example where we used <ol type = "a">

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   
   <head>
      <title>HTML Ordered List</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <ol type = "a">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>
      </ol>
   </body>
	
</html>

This will produce the following result −

The start Attribute

You can use start attribute for <ol> tag to specify the starting point of numbering you need. Following are the possible options −

<ol type = "1" start = "4">    - Numerals starts with 4.
<ol type = "I" start = "4">    - Numerals starts with IV.
<ol type = "i" start = "4">    - Numerals starts with iv.
<ol type = "a" start = "4">    - Letters starts with d.
<ol type = "A" start = "4">    - Letters starts with D.

Example

Following is an example where we used <ol type = "i" start = "4" >

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Ordered List</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <ol type = "i" start = "4">
         <li>Beetroot</li>
         <li>Ginger</li>
         <li>Potato</li>
         <li>Radish</li>

HTML Definition Lists

HTML and XHTML supports a list style which is called definition lists where entries are listed like in a dictionary or encyclopedia. The definition list is the ideal way to present a glossary, list of terms, or other name/value list.

Definition List makes use of following three tags.

  • <dl> − Defines the start of the list
  • <dt> − A term
  • <dd> − Term definition
  • </dl> − Defines the end of the list

Example

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

   <head>
      <title>HTML Definition List</title>
   </head>
	
   <body>
      <dl>
         <dt><b>HTML</b></dt>
         <dd>This stands for Hyper Text Markup Language</dd>
         <dt><b>HTTP</b></dt>
         <dd>This stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol</dd>
      </dl>
   </body>
	
</html>
