Yes, it's true, the start - attribute doesn't work on most E-Readers as well as the value attribute (for <li>-tags). Plus, there are readers out in the world, which can't handle simple lists properly.

I make hard-coded list as follows:
--------------------------------------------------------------
html:
<p class="fn"><span class="no">1.</span>some text</p>

css:
p.fn { margin-left: 2em; text-indent: 0; }
span.no { float: left; margin-left: -1.9em; }
---------------------------------------------------------------

@DiapDealer: How do you code your lists ?
