But your sentence doesn't parse for me :( > Besides the grammar problems; Sorry, I'm not a native english speaker. Could you please point me to the grammar problems. could you tell me what a 'superior list item' > is? Yes, I can. I will explain it using the following example: Think of the following list: 1. Paragraph A (list item on list level 1) 1.1 Paragraph B (list item on list level 2) 2. Paragraph C (list item on list level 1) 2.1 Paragraph D (list item on list level 2) 2.2 Paragraph E (list item on list level 2) 2.2.1 Paragraph F (list item on list level 3) - list item "1. Paragraph A" is the superior list item of list item "1.1 Paragraph B" - list item "2. Paragraph C" is the superior list item of the list items "2.1 Paragraph D" and "2.2 Paragraph E" - list item "2.2.1 Paragraph E" is the superior list item of list item "2.2.1 Paragraph F" > The default list style is something that actually needs to be defined in the > spec. Referring to it without saying what it contains should be fixed :) Since now, nobody has any concern against this part of the OpenDocument specification. If you've got one, please provide an appropriate proposal to change this part of the specification. > > Could you write something more clear on what you want the first part of the > numbering to be? Yes, I'll try. I will again use the above given example: Imagine that the above given list is represented in the OpenDocument file format using <text:numbered-paragraph>. Imagine that list style "L2" is given at the list item "2.2 Paragraph E". List style "L2" only contains a list level definition for list level 2. But, as you see, the list label of this list item contains the number of list level 1. The number format for this number can't be taken from list style "L2", because its missing. Thus, I propose to take it from the list level definition, which is applied to list item "2. Paragraph C". "2. Paragraph C" is the superior list item of list item "2.2 Paragraph E". Regards, Oliver.
