The HTML 4.0 specification (and all previous ones, AFAIAA) sets the
default starting value for ordered lists to 1. CSS 2 does this for all
types except "decimal", which it says starts at 0. I think this should be
changed to 1 to retain consistency.

Alternatively, a new list property could be added, allowing the starting
position to specified explicitly - especially since the HTML "start"
attribute is now deprecated.
