As an author, I would like the possibility to declare how many digits a 
list can have. An example of a <OL> with four digits.


0001 <li> ... </li>
0002 <li> ... </li>

       up to

9999 <li> ... </li>


An example of a <OL> with the spacing of four digits.

    1 <li> ... </li>
    2 <li> ... </li>

         to

   10 <li> ... </li>

       up to

9999 <li> ... </li>


Also the often requested subitems within one <ol>. Like decimal places.


1.1 <li> ... </li>
1.2 <li> ... </li>
2   <li> ... </li>
3.1 <li> ... </li>
