I18N-ISSUE-343: Type attribute on ol [.prep-HTML5]

4.4.5 The ol element

The type attribute seems to be a presentational device that ought to be replaced by CSS, especially given that all major browsers support the styles described when they are specified by use of list-style-type (see http://www.w3.org/International/tests/repository/css3-counter-styles/predefined-styles/results-cstyles#simplenumeric for the roman styles).  If it is truly presentational, perhaps we should deprecate it.

Or is this intentionally kept as a way to allow a minimal set of 'semantically' differentiated lists, that will work if CSS is not present? If so, perhaps we should add a brief note to explain that, and mention that you can do much more using CSS.
