“Unfortunately the use of an unordered list is inappropriate. The list element is designed to keep together groups of related things such as words, phrases or short sentences.”

 

The HTML5 specification places no such constraint on the use of the <ul> element. It simply says the <ul> element should be used to represent a list of items where the order is unimportant [1].
