I often implement numbered list for both print and web projects. At times it is just more efficient to break the list into two, three, or four columns.
How should item ordering be handled?
Should numbers start at 1 in the top left then move down the column, then jump to the next column to continue numbering? (Option A)
Or should numbers start at 1 in the top left the move sideways to #2, #3, etc., jumping columns for each number? (Option B)
In terms of web responsiveness, Option B provides better break points (at times with 3 or 4 columns).
Should this be handled the same in both print and web?
