Shorter version of my previous post:

Gruber gives this example...

3. Bird
1. McHale
8. Parish

...and states that it will be numbered 1-2-3. Which is enough to make
clear that in Markdown's design, the kind of goofy content in list-
item markers that we're discussing is ignored. Simple.

All this other talk strokes programmers' egos but doesn't result in
more usable software. Read Alan Cooper's excellent book, "The Inmates
Are Running the Asylum"; you'll see what I mean.
