Hi Najib,

Did you have in mind the arabic-indic digits or some other arabic
scheme?  Note that the arabic-indic digits are currently proposed for
inclusion in CSS3 http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-lists/#arabic-indic

You may want to check whether the proposed implementation seems to make
sense.

Cheers,
RI
