Hi Øyvind , 

I haven't been able to track down the start of this thread to clarify things in my mind. The spec refers to this as a 'numbering system', so I'm not sure why the original that wording is so confusing, but how about:

"Test passes if the characters in the content of each line are used for the list item marker."
