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>

And the 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.
