Hi Richard,

how about to point out in one sentence in the abstract or right after 
the first sentence at the beginning of the Introduction what counter 
styles are all about.
Counter is kind of a universal word for everything. I am quite sure, 
nobody will try to find an answer, how to paint the counter in his shop. 
...but maybe you understand what I mean.

You could copy and paste from the counter spec:
allows authors to define their own custom counter styles ***for use with 
CSS list-marker and generated-content counters***
That stuff in the *** stars, for example, explains it quickly.

Otherwise some people (like me) have to scroll down a lot to properly 
confirm for themselves what it is all about when they see this document 
for the first time. (I know most people will know what they are 
searching for, but one sentence for the small percentage of unknowing.)

Stefan
