This is wrong:
    Value:  	[ <identifier> <integer>? ]+ | none | inherit
The 'counter-reset' property also contains a list of one or more names
of counters, each one optionally followed by an integer. The integer
gives the value that the counter is set to on each occurrence of the
element. The default is 0."

...though I don't now how well this is implemented in browsers (seems
like IE, even IE7, doesn't implement it; or is it just its lack of
::before support?).
