HTML has three types of lists. <ol> shows a ordinate list while <ul> a unsorted one, and for making a definition list is used <dl>. Use the attributes type and start for making a list depending on your requests.
Use <ol> tag for starting a ordered list. And put <li></li> (list item) in between.
<h4>Objectives</h4> <ol> <li>To find a job</li> <li>To take a lots of money </li> <li>To move in an other city</li> </ol>
You can start your list with any number you want, just specifying it with the help of the start attribute.
<h4>Objective</h4> <ol start="4" > <li>To find a job </li> <li>To take a lots of money </li> <li>To move in an other city</li> </ol>
This element is not doing anything out of common but is pretty useful sometimes.
Excluding the upper example there are other 4 types of ordered lists. Insead of the normal numeration you can use roman numbers or as well letters but in both cases it can be used only small letters or capital letters. Use the type attribute if you want to modify the type of the numbering
<ol type="a"> <ol type="A"> <ol type="i"> <ol type="I">
Depending on the case, this lists may look like this
|Small letters||Capital letters||Roman numbers with small letters||Roman numbers with capital letters|
You can create an unsorted list with the help of the <ul> tag. The unsorted lists are of three types : squares, bullets, and circles. The standard value gave by the majority of the browsers are bullets.
<h4>Shopping list </h4> <ul> <li>milk</li> <li>cheese</li> <li>eggs</li> <li>sugar</li> </ul>
You can see in the next example how all types of unsorted lists looks like.
<ul type="square"> <ul type="disc"> <ul type="circle">
As well you can make definition lists using the <dl> tag. This list will give the word above, the definition. It is indicated to bold the word so that it will be more evident.
<dl> <dt>Queso</dt> <dd>Spanish word for cheese.</dd> <dt>Ordenador</dt> <dd>Spanish word for Personal Computer</dd> </dt>
