Surprisingly Flash Player 9 does not support Ordered List <ol> tag for TextField.htmlText property. It gives output same as Unordered List <ul>. Also it does not support “type” attribute of <ul> tag.
TextField.htmlText supports List Item <li> tag but that is also limited. It does not support “type” attribute of <li> tag. It supports only “circle” as a type of <li> tag.
Flash Player 9 supports following HTML tags :
Hope that Flash Player 10 will support <ol> tag 🙂
