<p>I have visisted the following countries:</p>
<ol start="50">

I have visisted the following countries:

  1. Indonesia
  2. Japan
  3. UAE
  4. UK

In the above example, the list item markers are numerical values starting from 50 instead of 1.

The numbering of items is increased by one. And the list items are numbered as (50,51,52,53,54...)
