HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html><!-- Declares the document type and version of HTML -->
<html><!-- Begins the HTML document -->
<head><!-- Contains metadata about the document -->
<meta charset="utf-8"><!-- Specifies the character encoding of the document -->
<title>How to specify the kind of marker to use in the list </title><!-- Sets the title of the document -->
</head><!-- Ends the head section -->
<body><!-- Contains the content of the document -->
<ol type="I"><!-- Starts an ordered list with uppercase Roman numerals as markers -->
<li>Monitor</li><!-- Defines the first list item -->
<li>Keyboard</li><!-- Defines the second list item -->
<li>Mouse</li><!-- Defines the third list item -->
<li>Printer</li><!-- Defines the fourth list item -->
</ol><!-- Ends the ordered list -->
</body><!-- Ends the body section -->
</html><!-- Ends the HTML document -->


  • The HTML document begins with a declaration of its type and version (<!DOCTYPE html>).
  • The <html> element encloses the entire HTML document.
  • The <head> section contains metadata about the document, such as character encoding and title.
  • The <meta charset="utf-8"> tag specifies the character encoding of the document as UTF-8.
  • The <title> tag sets the title of the document.
  • Inside the <body> section, there is an ordered list (<ol>).
    • The type="I" attribute specifies that uppercase Roman numerals should be used as markers for the list items.
  • Each <li> tag represents a list item within the ordered list.
  • The HTML document is properly closed with the </html> tag.
