I've mailed www-style (not with any ideas, just bringing it up). The
thread should be named [CSS 3 counters] Dealing with <ol start=""> and
<li value=""> ?
However, my messages have a history of not going through there ( >:o ),
so if it's not there in a day or so and no one else has started a
thread, perhaps someone can forward it for me?
Subject: [CSS 3 counters] Dealing with <ol start=""> and <li value=""> ?
The WHAT WG's WA1 draft brings back the start attribute on ordered lists
and introduces a value attribute on individual list items, and semantic
grouping of lists (saying two <ol></ol>s are in fact one list) is being
discussed. Unless I missed something in my (admittedly quick) reading,
the Counters section in both CSS 2.1 and CSS 3 seems insufficient to
deal with this.
I don't actually have any thoughts on how to solve it, but just wanted
to make sure it didn't get lost in the void.
