html li tag

The HTML <li> tag is used for specifying a list item in ordered and unordered lists.

This element can be used in conjunction with the <ol> and <ul> elements to provide each individual list item within those elements. It can also be used with the <menu> element, however, this element is not supported by the W3C HTML5 specification - it is only supported by the WHATWG HTML Living Standard.

Example

The three examples below demonstrate usage of the <li> element.

<ol>
<li value="5">Cats</li>
<li>Dogs</li>
</ol>

<ol>
<li>Cats</li>
<li>Dogs</li>
</ol>

<ul>
<li>Cats</li>
<li>Dogs</li>
</ul>
