I have a comment on the lower and upper greek alphabetic list type (

It seems that the list containcs just the greek alphabet. I don't know
the exact purpose of this draft (the abstract says "This CSS level 3
module describes how lists are styled."), but when using greek letters
to make a "list of things", especially when referring to numeric
equivalent (first, second, third etc.), then the sixt element of the
list IS NOT the sixt character  but a combination of 2 characters.

example on the web

this page is a list of public archeological organizations in Greece.
Note the names of the organizations beginning with a greek letter. The
sixt name has 2 letters.

I don't know how this is explained formally (and if there are more
 cases like this) but this shouldn't be difficult to find out.
