Hope you had a good week.

In this article, we are going to continue on HTML lists.

According to the Oxford Advanced Learner Dictionary, a list is a series of names, items, figures, etc. Lists in HTML are used to present information in a semantic way.

The types of lists that can be used in HTML are :

  • ul : An unordered list. This will list items using plain
  • ol : An ordered list. This will use different schemes of numbers to list your
  • dl : A definition list. This arranges your items in the same way as they are arranged in a

The type of list is defined with a list tag, while the items in the list are defined with a list item tag.

A.             UNORDERED LIST:

An unordered list starts with the <ul> tag. Each list item starts with the <li> tag.

For example:

<h4> Jola’s Colour List </h4>

<ul>

<li> Red </li>

<li> Purple </li>

<li>Green</li>

<li>Yellow</li>

<li>Black</li>

</ul>

B.             ORDERED LISTS

An ordered list starts with the <ol> tag. Each list item starts with the <li> tag.

For example:

<h4> Jola’s Colour List </h4>

<ol>

<li> King of Boys </li>

<li> The Wedding Party </li>

<li> Sugar Rush </li>

</ol>

C.             DEFINITION LISTS

The <dl> tag defines the description list, the <dt> tag defines the term (name), and the <dd> tag describes each term.

For example:

<h4> Jola’s Breakfast List </h4>

<dl>

<!– This is the definition term–>

<dt> Cereal </dt>

<!–This is the description–>

<dd> A a breakfast food made from roasted grain, typically eaten with milk.</dd>

<dt>Tea </dt>

<dd> A hot drink made by infusing the dried crushed leaves of the tea plant in boiling water.</dd>

</dl>

D.             NESTED LISTS

These are lists that contain more than one list eg a combination of ordered and unordered lists. For example:

<h4> Jola’s Baking List </h4>

<!– This is a nested list–>

<!–It first begins as an unordered list–>

<ul>

<li> Cake

<ul>

<!–It then continues as an unordered list, describing what is above–>

<li>Egg</li>

<li>Flour</li>

<li>Baking powder</li>

</ul>

</li>

<li> Chin chin </li>

</ul>
