      margin: 15px;
   }
</style>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.4.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
   $(document).ready(function(){
      $("ol").find("span").css({"background-color": "orange", "color": "black","border": "3px dashed orange"});
   });
</script>
</head>
<body class="demo">body
