ol list example

1. HTML code

Create ordered list. Do not forget to wrap your text with p:

<ol>
  <li> 
    <p>
      This is line one
    </p> 
  </li> 
  <li> 
    <p>
      Here is line two
    </p> 
  </li> 
  <li> 
    <p>
      And last line
    </p> 
  </li> 
</ol>

Here is how ordered list will be displayed by default:
