    counter-reset

    Summary

    The counter-reset CSS property is used to reset CSS Counters to a given value.

    Syntax

    Formal syntax: [<user-ident> <integer>?]+ | none
    
    /* Set counter-name to 0 */
    counter-reset: counter-name;
    
    /* Set counter-name to -1 */

    counter-reset: inherit;
    

    Values

    <custom-ident>
    The name of the counter to increment. This identifier is composed by a combination of case-insensitive letters a to z, numbers 0 to 9, underscores (_), and/or dashes (-). The first non-dash character must be a letter (that is, no number at the beginning of it, even if preceded by a dash.) Also, two dashes are forbidden at the beginning of the identifier. It can't be none, unset, initial, or inherit in any combination of cases.
    <integer>
    The value to reset the counter to on each occurrence of the element. Defaults to 0 if not given.
    none
    Is a keyword indicating that no counter reset is to be performed. It can be used to hide counter-reset defined in less specific rules.

    You may specify as many counters to reset as you want, each separated by a space.

    Examples

    h1 {
      counter-reset: chapter section 1 page;
      /* Sets the chapter and page counters to 0
         and the section counter to 1. */
    }
