ordered list numbering problem

Hi all

I have an ePUB file in which are several ordered lists and in the printed publication the list is interrupted several times and the numbering continues where it left off after the interruption (ie, not back at 1 again). I didn't expect that to be output correctly as ePUB but I thought I could use start="5" in the <ol> tag to fix that but it seems that is not valid xhtml (and it doesn't work in ADE). Having a look around it seems like there is no way round this with CSS!

Is that right - are there really no workarounds? What are other people doing to get round this glaring omission in ePUB?

thanks
