The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Counter
Style Module Level 3:

     http://www.w3.org/TR/css-counter-styles-3/

This spec documents the existing CSS 2.1 and 2.0 counter styles
in better detail, adds a handful of CJK and other list styles,
and adds an @counter-style rule which allows authors to define
their own counter styles.

Significant changes since the last WD are listed at:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-css-counter-styles-3-20130221/#changes
Significant additions include:
   - the 'width' descriptor for, e.g. zero-filled counters
       http://www.w3.org/TR/css-counter-styles-3/#counter-style-width
   - the 'speak-as' descriptor for customizing text-to-speech
       http://www.w3.org/TR/css-counter-styles-3/#counter-style-speak-as
   - the 'disclosure-*' styles, intended to be used for the
     HTML <details> element and similar use cases
       http://www.w3.org/TR/css-counter-styles-3/#simple-symbolic
We'd especially appreciate a review of these additions.

We expect the next step to be Last Call.

Please send any comments to <www-style@w3.org>, and please, prefix the
subject line with

     [css-counter-styles]

(as I did on this message).

For the CSS WG,
