Glenn,

Is there any hope that there could be at least a particular solution, instead
of saying "It shouldn't be done at all, because in complex documents it becomes
infeasible" ?

So if we leave out ordered lists, or
put the numbering information in URL extension, some may call it imperfect, but
on the other hand it could be better than to give up? Best regards, -- Mirsad
