Are we talking about 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-lists-20021107/#marker> or something 
else?  Per http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-lists-20021107//#marker as 
far as I can tell the Opera/webkit behavior is wrong.

If I'm looking at the wrong spec, which one should I be looking at?  If 
not, then how did you reach your conclusion?
