Well, it would do - thinking about it - Doesn't JAWS parse the <ol> and subsequent <li> tags and ignore the CSS/style which makes the type of number visible?

	I asked a coworker who uses Jaws for everything. The results are quite
	surprising:
	
	For ordered lists, Jaws reads "I, 2, 3..." It gets everything except the
	first one.
	
	My attempt at using a lang attribute in the acronym tag turned out to be
	worthless: Jaws reads <acronym lang="la" title="Part V">V</acronym> as "la
	V".
