OL & UL Aug 15, 2012

Hi, Andrea, hope you are fine. I am attending the webinar HTML for translators where you explain two types of lists, OL and UL, but there is no explanation about OL. This is very clear for me what is an UL, but not an OL. I would appreciate you tell me about it.

Thanks in advance,

Araceli Martinez

Hi Araceli
OL stands for Ordered List so it can be a numbered list such as this:
  1. First item

  2. Second item

  3. Third item

Instead of the standard numbers (1, 2, 3) you can set other types of ordered symbols, such as letters (a, b, c or i, ii, iii).

If you substitute OL with UL you get an Unordered List:

  • First item

  • Second item

  • Third item

Hope this is clear.
Take care
