HTML5 Tutorial 5: Making lists

Making lists in HTML is very easy, we will be using the tags <ol>, <ul>, <menu> and <li> today.

<ol>
To make a standard ordered list like this:

  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
  3. Item 3
You would use the tag <ol> which stands for Ordered List, for any list you must also use the tag <li> which stands for List Item, You use the tags together like so:
<ol>
      <li>Item 1</li>
      <li>Item 2</li>
      <li>Item 3</li>
</ol>
This will show up like the above example.

<ul>
<ul> stands for Un-ordered list which is bullet points, like so:
  • Item 1
  • Item 2
  • Item 3
To use them you simply change <ol> to <ul> like this:
<ul>
       <li>Item 1</li>
       <li>Item 2</li>
       <li>Item 3</li>
</ul>
<menu>
This is probably the most used form of lists, Checkboxes, They look like this:

  • Item 1


  • Item 2


  • Item 3

  • To use them you simply use the following code:

    <menu>
    <li><input type="checkbox" />Item 1</li>
    <li><input type="checkbox" />Item 2</li>
            <li><input type="checkbox" />Item 3</li>
    </menu>

    Catch'ya later guys.
