When using several <ol> elements and keeping the same numbering over  
them all, it would be useful to have a "continue" attribute. e.g.

	<ol id="firstbit">
	  <li>Apples</li>
	  <li>Bananas</li>
	</ol>
	<p>A break from the list.</p>
	<ol continue="firstbit">
	  <li>Pears</li>
	  <li>Oranges</li>
	</ol>

The continue attribute would suggest that the second list is a  
logical continuation of the first list, and browsers should continue  
the numbering, so that "Oranges" would be numbered "4".
