Create a descending list of numbered items

Topics: HTML

By default, an ordered list element (ol tag) will display the number for each item in the ascending order.
The first item is shown with the number 1. The second item comes with number 2, and so forth.

There are some cases that we would like to reverse the order of numbers, but the actual items are kept.
Coundowns such as top 5 movies, top 10 songs, etc., are the best examples for the use case.

To do that, we just simply add the reversed attribute:

<ol reversed>

You can use the start attribute which indicates the start number.
