Demo for Help:List#Multi-column numbered lists to see that with 3 digits all are shown, with each of the three methods.

Extra indentation of lists[edit]

In a numbered list in a large font, some browsers do not show more than two digits, unless extra indentation is applied (if there are multiple columns: for each column). This can be done with CSS:

ol { margin-left: 2cm}

or alternatively, like below.

The colon creates a definition list and puts the list in a definition description. This is semantically incorrect, but commonly used and usually does the job.

<ul>
  <ol>
    <li>abc</li>
    <li>def</li>
    <li>ghi</li>
  </ol>

MediaWiki translates an unordered list (ul) without any list items (li) as an indentation and replaces them with a div with a style="margin-left: 2em".
