I sure didn’t! Tomek Sułkowsi shows how we can reverse the numbering of ordered lists with a simple HTML attribute:
<ol reversed> <li>Apple</li> <li>Banana</li> <li>Pear</li> </ol>
start attribute can be added to begin the list at a number other than one, like this:
<ol start="2"> <li>Apple</li> <li>Banana</li> <li>Pear</li> </ol>
I’m not sure how I never knew about these properties! I guess I can see how they might come in handy in the future. There are plenty of times when we need to break up ordered lists here on CSS-Tricks with things like code blocks and having a way to pick a list back up where it left off is a nice convenience.
