Bold numbers in ordered lists

To get bold numbers in ordered lists, one can write

ol { font-weight: bold }
ol span { font-weight: normal }

<ol>
<li><span>..... .</span></li>
<li><span>..... .</span></li>
</ol>

Is there a better way?

There is a perfectly good way that uses the semantic equivalent of an
ordered list, a two column table, with which your requirement has a
simple solution.

Nice - and it degrades well for CSS deficient browsers, too.

I don't know what you mean by "semantic equivalent" - but I certainly
cannot get automatic numbering in a table.

Oh, don't expect it to work in IE!

Firefox, SeaMonkey, Opera... the browser must support css counters.

Take care,

Also Konqueror 3.5.8 so I assume Safari will also work.

So if the 'type' attribute of the OL element is deprecated and authors should rely only on stylesheets how one could use a reference (as clear text) in the content to a particular list element? Suppose I have: <ol type="1" id="main"> <li>baba</li> <li>lele <ol type="a" id="ext">

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
