I don't see anything in the docs or GitHub issues that mentions the "reversed" attribute on ordered lists. Can this be added? Has it been discussed?

I've written what I believe to be an accurate polyfill for the "reversed" attribute on ordered lists:

It also takes into consideration the "start" attribute. More info on these here:


i would imagine its

'reversed' in document.createElement('ol')

So this works:

if (!('reversed' in document.createElement('ol'))) { }
