Do you use "list" tags for lists only?

The HTML list tags <ul> and <ol> should be used for unordered and ordered lists only .

Tip: If your list tag (<ul> or <ol>) doesn't have a list item (<li>) inside it, then it's not a list. Consider using another HTML tag (E.g. <p>).

<ul> A normal text </ul>

<ul><li>A list item</li></ul>

<ol><li>A list item</li></ol>
