The HTML <li></li> element is used to represent a list item. If it is a child of a <menu>, an <ol>, or an <ul>, it is part of these lists and its relation to the other list items is defined by their respective semantics. If it is not the child of those elements, it doesn't convey a list-related relationship with other <li> elements.


Attribute Value Description

List items that follow will continue numbering from the value set. This attribute has no meaning for unordered lists or for menus.
