Hello www-style,

    http://www.nb.no/baser/schoyen/4/4.2/425.html

    "2 columns (28x19 cm), 38-45 lines in an angular late Romanesque
    book script, headings in red, 1-line initials for tables in
    alternating red, blue and green, 2-line decorated initials with
    marginal extensions throughout in red blue or green with
    decoration in blue or red, 2 very large decorated initials in
    elaborate plantstem and leafy designs in red infilled with wash in
    red, green, blue and yellow-brown, 6 very large decorated initials
    in arabesque designs in divided blue, red or green, or red and
    blue, with elaborate infill in the other colours including
    yellow-green."

    Nice example of making block-level and list-item elements inline;
    the 'every-third-initial' selector might need some work though.
    Drop caps a problem as ever, and optical alignment also. The first
    three numbers in the numbered list are block, and set into the
    margin with right alignment, the rest are inline.
