Ordered Lists with Unicode Symbols

Ordered lists are among the oldest and most semantically rich elements in HTML. Anytime you need to communicate sequence or ranking, the <ol> tag is there to help. The default appearance of the <ol> tag presents numbers next to each item in the list. You can use the list-style-type property in CSS to change the default to use Roman numerals or the letters of the alphabet.

Since starting at Viget over four years ago, I’ve had the opportunity to share a ‘State of the Web’ presentation at many of our quarterly ‘Third Third Thursday’ (TTT) events. These talks offer the chance to explore and share key trends in our industry, and they’re just one of the ways Viget works to stay ahead of the curve. You can watch the Fall 2016 presentation below, or keep scrolling to read the highlights: Mobile Growth It should come as no surprise that mobile traffic is the present and the future. According to some sources, mobile traffic has already surpassed desktop worldwide. This holiday season, comScore predicts that retailers will see three times more traffic from mobile than from desktop. While this growth is obvious even in the U.S., it’s especially prominent in middle and low-income nations. Nigeria, South Africa, Indonesia and India see mobile account for over 66% of…
