The text for the 'width' descriptor of counter styles has this paragraph:

> If the counter value is negative and the counter style is
> negative-capable, reduce the width by one or two when determining how
> many copies to prepend, depending on whether the ‘negative’
> descriptor's value is one or two <symbol>s.

Although the example afterwards clarifies the editor’s intent, I find 
this text unclear. What exactly is reduced?

I suggest changing "reduce the width" to "reduce the specified <integer> 
value" or "reduce the minimum width".
