<li> elements must be contained in a <ul> or <ol>

All list items (li) must be contained within ul or ol parent elements.

For a list to be valid, it must have both parent and child elements. Parent elements can either be a set of ul tags or a set of ol tags. Child elements must be declared inside of these tags using the li tag.

Screen readers notify users when they come to a list, and tell them how many items are in a list. Announcing the number of items in a list and the current list item helps listeners know what they are listening to, and what to expect as they listen to it.

If you don't mark up a list using proper semantic markup in a hierarchy, list items cannot inform the listener that they are listening to a list when no parent is indicating the presence of a list and the type of list.
