The CSS WG has published a Last Call Working Draft of CSS Counter
Styles Level 3:


This specification better defines the existing 'list-style-type'
values that were introduced in CSS 2 and 2.1, and defines a few new
styles for certain complex numbering systems that were not well served

Additionally, it defines the @counter-style rule, which allows authors
to define their own counter styles for use in 'list-style-type' andthe
 "counter()" and "counters()" functions.  The I18N Working Group is
now maintaining a list of example counter styles for many of the
world's numbering systems at

The CSSWG would appreciate feedback on this module, particularly on
the aspects changed since the previous working draft:

* technical feedback on any mistakes in the algorithms in the specs,
or the predefined counter styles
* feedback on the new 'pad' and 'speak-as' descriptors

Significant changes are listed at:


Please send any comments to this mailing list, <www-style at w3.org>, and
