An ordered list typically is an enumerated list of items. HTML provides you the capability to manage the sequence number - to continue where the prior list left off, or to start at a selective number. The ordered list is used to generate a list of similar items, in a particular order. The open tag must be <OL> for the list. It is supported by an arbitrary list header (<LH>caption</LH>) and then by the initial list item (<LI>). The valuation of items in an ordered list typically begins with 1. However, if you need to edit that you can apply the start attribute.
