From time to time, I encounter posts that use nested lists, where one of the lists uses numbers (1., 2., 3.) as markers and the other uses letters (a), b), c)), but are not properly formatted (example).
I think using different markers makes the post less confusing, but I didn't figure out a way to format it properly, without changing all the markers to numbers.
I tried to use HTML
type attribute, but it produces really weird results:
<ol type="a"> <li> first item </li> <li> second item </li> </ol>
Is there some way to achieve this using current implementation of Markdown? If not, could some way to create lists with letter markers be added (whether by extending Markdown or by parsing HTML properly)?
