Ordered lists get numbers assigned to each item. Start an ordered list with the tag <ol> and end it with the tag </ol>. Each item is prefaced by an <li> tag, and ended with a </li> tag.

Sample Ordered List
<ol>
<li>Ordered Lists</li>
<li>Unordered Lists</li>
<li>Definition Lists</li>
</ol>

Unordered list

Unordered lists show each item prefaced by a bullet, which varies a bit in appearance as you nest levels of lists. they are designated by the tag <ul> and the closing tag </ul>. they also use the <li> and </li> tags for items.

Sample Unordered List
<ul>
<li>Ordered Lists</li>
<li>Unordered Lists</li>
<li>Definition Lists</li>
</ul>

Definition list

This is a definition list! They are started and stopped with <dl> and </dl> tags.
