@upsuper Fair point, counter values are inherited from the immediately preceding element in document order instead of from the parent element as usual. So maybe it would be better to add a `sibling-index()` function as Tab Atkins proposed in https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/1869#issuecomment-340078522; it would be less powerful but I think it would cover most usecases.

However, note that the CSS Lists draft currently allows [`counter()`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-lists/#counter-functions) anywhere a `<string>` is expected, doesn't this have the same problem? If it's possible to use a counter value as a string, it should also be possible to use it as an integer.
