Hello Ori,

The page does mention CSS3 at the top, but it exists to test whether and how implementations support Hebrew numbering as per CSS2. For example, Firefox 2 does support some Hebrew numbering.  The test is, however, exploratory, since there is no definition in CSS2 or CSS2.1 of how the numbering should be done. 

I have yet to find the time to put together tests for CSS3.  Would you be interested in creating one for Hebrew along the lines of http://localhost/International/tests/sec-list-style-type-2 ? 

Cheers,
RI
