Firefox used to render
Now it does not. The HTML 4.1 spec at http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/lists.html#type-values
says use CSS instead.
used to work in the CentOS 5 supplied Firefox. Now OL produce digits instead.
“Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5
The type attribute of the
element is no longer deprecated in HTML5.”
If something is “deprecated” it is supposed to work until it is withdrawn or cancelled.
Is Firefox’s inability to render
a bug or a very annoying irritation especially as I have hundreds of hand-coded pages using it ?
