As you all know, list-style-type has been around for a long time and has made possible the numbering of html list items in scripts such as cjk-ideographic, devanagari, tibetan, thai …etc…

I make extensive use of international list numbering in my blog eg list-style-type:cjk-ideographic http://schappo.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/western-brands-on-weibo.html

There are a number of technical and test sites that explain/demonstrate international list numbering and so use international list numbering.

But … I have never come across any regular websites in the wild using international list numbering. I have only ever encountered regular websites using the 1,2,3,4,… numbering. I do frequently look at non english websites because of my study of IDNs.

Anybody encountered any regular websites using international list numbering? If you have can you please post links as I would like to show them to my students (and I would like to see them myself :)). I have only ever encountered regular websites using the 1,2,3,4,… numbering.

Thank you
