I am answering this one and included 4.3 in the subject line since it 
got posted twice.



Sorry, could not resist!

14.10 List Style makes it clear that there are separate style elements 
for numbers, bullets and images for lists.

Do note that the list in 4.3 is a list using informal names and not 
element or attribute names specified by ODF 1.0.

The reason I mention that is there really is a "numbered bullet" style. 
You have probably seen it, it is a solid circle with a number, usually 
in a different color or in outline in the center of the "bullet." Not 
one of the high points in typography in my opinion. ;-)

Just my opinion but I would suspect that it would be specified as a 
number style since the number should increment. But you could 
legitimately call it a numbered bullet.

Hope you are having a great day!
