Firefox used to render <ol type="a"> <li>.................</li> as a. ............... Now it does not. The HTML 4.1 spec at http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/lists.html#type-values says use CSS instead. These <ol type="a"> <ol type="A"> <ol type="i"> used to work in the Centos 5 supplied Firefox. Now OL produce digits instead. http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_ol_type.asp states "Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5 The type attribute of the <ol> element is no longer deprecated in HTML5." If something is "deprecated" it is supposed to work until it is withdrawn or cancelled. Is Firefox's inability to render <ol type="a"> a bug or a very annoying irritation especially as I have hundreds of hand-coded pages using it ? :-( -- Paul. England, EU.
