Is there any way to style numbered list continuation using html elements in ADE?

Example:
1. first item
2. Second item
3. third item

Section heading

4. Fourth item
5. fifth item

html coding:
<ol>
<li>first item</li>
<li>second item</li>
<li>third item</li> </ol>
<h2>Section heading>
<ol start="5">
<li>Fourth Value</li>
<li>Fifth value</li>
</ol>

or

<h2>Section heading>
<ol>
<li value="4">Fourth Value</li>
<li>Fifth value</li>
</ol>

But none of them works with ADE. Can anyone advice how to achieve this layout using stylesheet with these elements (ol, li)?

thanks, B

It seems the ePUB spec is based on XHTML 1.1, which in turn is based on XHTML 1.0, which apparently does not include the "start", or "value" properties. You could try the "counter-reset" CSS property, but it's not in the required set of ePUB, so I'd bet it won't work.

you can use a table, or a definition list to make it work well and format properly. it'd be a little off structurally, but it would look good.
