Nevertheless, I don't think there is much of a use case for defining 
numbering in Aegean or other archaic scripts. Scholars publishing the 
text from an artifact including a numbered list are surely going to 
transcribe the numbers as they appear in the original, rather than 
relying on the automatic numbering in their browser.
