I’ve learned that you can reverse the sequence of numbers in an HTML ordered list (
<ol>) with the HTML5 attribute,
reversed. As in:
<ol reversed> <li>French hens</li> <li>Turtledoves</li> <li>Partridge in a pear tree</li> </ol>
- French hens
- Partridge in a pear tree
There is also the attribute
start to specify the start value, useful to resume the numbering of a list after it is interrupted by another block element.
