Webreference.com: HTML 3.0 and Netscape 3.0: LIST Elements
HTML 3.0 and Netscape 3.0
In HTML 3.0 ordered and unordered lists can contain an optional list header [Ra 95g]). This provides a clean way to label lists, and user agents that can deal with folded lists can use the headers instead of the list. NHTML has no equivalent.
Both HTMLs allow for custom bullets for unordered lists but differ in their implementation. Both allow lists to start counting at a number other than 1, but differ again in their implementation. Therefore, lists should be used with no attributes until popular browsers support HTML 3.0 lists.
