Is a Boolean value reflecting the reversed and defining if the numbering is descending, that is its value is true, or ascending (false).
Is a long value reflecting the start and defining the value of the first number of the first element of the list.
Is a DOMString value reflecting the type and defining the kind of marker to be used to display. It can have the following values:
  • '1' meaning that decimal numbers are used: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …
  • 'a' meaning that the lowercase latin alphabet is used:  a, b, c, d, e, …
  • 'A' meaning that the uppercase latin alphabet is used: A, B, C, D, E, …
  • 'i' meaning that the lowercase latin numerals are used: i, ii, iii, iv, v, …
  • 'I' meaning that the uppercase latin numerals are used: I, II, III, IV, V, …
Is a Boolean indicating that spacing between list items should be reduced. This property reflects the compact attribute only, it doesn't consider the line-height CSS property used for that behavior in modern pages.
