Huji has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== Add support for a new list counter named 'persian-alpha' [css-persian-alpha] ==
The [https://www.w3.org/TR/css-lists-3/#propdef-list-style-type](list-style-type) property accepts several values such as `decimal`, `lower-alpha`, `armenian`, or `persian`.

In Persian, there are two ways in which footnotes are marked: using a numeric counter (similar to 1, 2, 3, ...) or using an alphabetic counter (similar to a, b, c, ...). The former is already part of CSS3 (`list-style-type: persian`). I would like to ask for the latter to also be added.

I have created a JSFiddle at https://jsfiddle.net/a8obup7r/1/ which demonstrates the desired output (try it with a Mozilla browser). Since there are thirty two letters in Persian alphabet, there are also thirty two symbols used.

Note that it is customary for the first one to not be a single letter "ا" but rather a three letter spelled-out name of that letter, ie "الف". Note also that it is customary for the 31st one to not be the letter "ه" in its loose form, but to be the character in its attached form "ھ".
