<li>Lorem ipsum.</li>
<li>Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident:
        <li>sunt in culpa qui officia,</li>
        <li>deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.</li>
<li>Ut enim ad minim veniam.
        <li>Quis nostrud exercitation.</li>
        <li>Ullamco laboris nisi ut.
                    Duis aute irure dolor


ol {
  list-style-type: none;
  counter-reset: item;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;

li {
  display: table;
  counter-increment: item;
  margin-bottom: 0.6em;

li:before {
  content: counters(item, ".") ". ";
  display: table-cell;
  padding-right: 0.6em;

Solution :

Just modify your HTML to have all your list inside an li element as follow:

  <li class="parent">
      /** Your HTML **/

And add the following css to hide the first numbering:

li.parent:before { content: ""; }
