Are the list attributes: start, type and style depricated? Are they not used with HTML5?

start and type were deprecated in HTML 4 but re-introduced in HTML5.

Check this list when in doubt or to confirm…


start is still valid when used in an <ol> OPENTAG. It’s only needed if the starting number is not 1.

style is a global attribute, but best practice is to avoid inline styles.

There is list property, list-style-type where we can specify the type of bullet. list-style can be used to disable bullets.

what is difference between ordered list and unordered list .they do same work in this codecademy exercise .thre is not different

An ordered list is numbered in sequence. Any unordered list has bullets, with no suggestion of order.
