Subject: Re: [dita-comment] Consider adding an attribute "numeration" to "ol"'s

Hi, Radu.

The DITA TC discussed your e-mail at the TC meeting last week.

The TC was quite split on this idea, with some people thinking that it would be a useful addition to the specification, and others strongly stating that it was inappropriate and something that should be handled as formatting.

We will add this to list of items to consider for DITA 2.0.

In Docbook ordered lists <orderedlist> elements have a "numeration" attribute which can be set to "arabic", "loweralpha", etc. This helps users better control the numbering in the output. Right now for DITA you need to make XSLT customizations based on the "outputclass" attribute in order to control in the output the numeration of an ordered list.
