Not on those items, but on whether the following would productively be
added to the pre-defined counter styles due to Microsoft Word's behavior
for alphabetic lists larger than 27 items:

@counter-style lower-alpha-symbolic {
	type: symbolic;
	glyphs: "a" "b" "c" "d" "e" "f" "g" "h" "i" "j" "k" "l" "m" "n"
"o" "p" "q" "r" "s" "t" "u" "v" "w" "x" "y" "z";

@counter-style upper-alpha-symbolic {
	type: symbolic;
	glyphs: "A" "B" "C" "D" "E" "F" "G" "H" "I" "J" "K" "L" "M" "N"
"O" "P" "Q" "R" "S" "T" "U" "V" "W" "X" "Y" "Z";

As you may recall from the posting that got me onto this list in the
first place, this is something my agency uses on a regular basis for
legal agenda announcements.  Normally, there are fewer than 28 items in
the list in question, but sometimes it can go into 27-plus items or,
rarely, 53-plus.

An example of live use would be
http://www.sfmta.com/cms/cmta/SFMTABoardOct.192010agenda.htm, item 10.2
in the agenda, about halfway down the page.  Since this is a
legally-required posting, the web page rendering needs to exactly match
the item as it would be called.

Hope this helps,
