Greetings,

At the bottom of this letter I've included some text for the CSS3
List module spec.  This in response to the request for "..a lot
more detail" in section 4.  A formatted revision is here:

  http://yacob.org/CSS3_Lists.html

I don't know how much information is desired, I've added enough
to give the flavour of the style types.  Feel free to rip out
what's excessive or request more detail where needed.


On the matter of the temporary term "marker" I'd like to suggest
"format" if it hasn't been rejected already.  I find it simple
and descriptive enough.

On the subject of list-styles;  the notion that all across
europe the upper and lower-alpha list styles imply the same
26 letter charset boggles my mind.  Is this truly the case that
French, German, Norwegian, etc use simply A-Z and do not add
their extra letters?  If so, why?  Maybe I'm easily fascinated..

Is there a Cyrillic list style?  I didn't see it listed in
the spec.

thanks,

/Daniel
