The CSS WG has published a Last Call Working Draft of CSS Counter
Styles Level 3:

    http://www.w3.org/TR/css-counter-styles-3/

This specification better defines the existing 'list-style-type'
values that were introduced in CSS 2 and 2.1, and defines a few new
styles for certain complex numbering systems that were not well served
previously.

Additionally, it defines the @counter-style rule, which allows authors
to define their own counter styles for use in 'list-style-type' andthe
 "counter()" and "counters()" functions.  The I18N Working Group is
now maintaining a list of example counter styles for many of the
world's numbering systems at
<http://www.w3.org/International/docs/counter-styles/>.

The CSSWG would appreciate feedback on this module, particularly on
the aspects changed since the previous working draft:

* technical feedback on any mistakes in the algorithms in the specs,
or the predefined counter styles
* feedback on the new 'pad' and 'speak-as' descriptors

Significant changes are listed at:

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-css-counter-styles-3-20130718/#changes

Please send any comments to this mailing list, <www-style@w3.org>, and
please, prefix the subject line with

    [css-counter-styles]

(as I did on this message).

For the CSS WG,
Tab Atkins
