How can I style even and odd elements

0 votes

Is it feasible to choose even and odd list item instances using CSS pseudo-classes?

The following should result in a list of items in alternate colours, but all I get is a list of blue things:

<html>
    <head>
        <style>
            li { color: blue }
            li:odd { color:green }
            li:even { color:red }
        </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <ul>
            <li>ho</li>
            <li>ho</li>
            <li>ho</li>
            <li>ho</li>
            <li>ho</li>
        </ul>
    </body>
</html>
