Dear All
In Tamil consonants & vowels are used for Bulleting since tamil have only a 
few consonants.But in malayalam only consonants are used. You can refer 
malayalam bulleting list from the site 
http://www.malayalamresourcecentre.org/w3c/malayalambulletinglist.htm and 
tamil from the site 
http://www.malayalamresourcecentre.org/w3c/tamilbulletinglist.htm..
Thanks & Regards,
Jose Stephen

>> Two questions:
>>
>> You show Vowel bulleting order and consonant bulleting order separately.
>> Does that mean that these are two different ways of labeling list items?
>> Or is there some way to combine them in a single labeling style?

>> In other words, would we need both of:
>> list-style-type: devanagari-vowel
>> list-style-type: devanagari-consonant
>>
>> Also, you say that this is the order for Indian languages, but does

>>
>> Sorry to ask so many questions.
