<ol compact>


The compact attribute specifies that the list should be rendered in a compact style.

Few browsers actually change the rendering of the list, regardless of the presence of this attribute.

Note: The compact attribute requires no value under traditional HTML but under XHTML should be set to compact="compact".

Standard Syntax

HTML: <ol compact>
XHTML: <ol compact="compact">
