The counter style cjk-decimal, which is defined in both CSS Counter
Styles Level 3 and Predefined Counter Styles, should have a range of
"0 infinite" instead of the default "infinite infinite".

The reason is that there is no proper negative symbol could be defined
for cjk-decimal: in spite of the difference of this symbol between
Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, traditional and simplified Chinese even
use different negative symbols. OTOH, the default negative symbol
seems to be strange when prepending to the number generated by

In conclusion, I propose changing the range of cjk-decimal to "0 infinite".
