If bug 26710 is WONTFIX on the grounds that CSS3 won't use "display: marker",
then Mozilla should support what CSS3 *will* use, namely "li::marker" (see
<http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-lists/#markers>). Currently, there is no way in
Mozilla to make an ordered list like this (for instance):
Steps to Reproduce:
Please don't file bugs for missing features. CSS3 Lists isn't in CR yet -- we
don't know for sure that ::marker will exist. Even if it did, CSS2.1 features,
and even more importantly, CSS2.1 bugs, are a much higher priority than CSS3.
Bugs for new features will be filed if someone implements them.
In the meantime, we have ::-moz-list-bullet (which is documented but will obviously never be a standard under that name) and ::-moz-list-number (which is not even documented yet). A personalized list like that mentioned in comment #0 can be achieved, but not easily, by means of CSS3 counters conforming to the current W3C "Draft recommendation": see bug 593739 comment #0 for a similar example with the "jumping through hoops" solution I found.
Does this still require bug 215083 in order to be implemented?
I don't think so. Did it ever?
(Sorry for the delay responding.)
To support ::marker, I guess we'll need to support the name alias for pseudo element since ::-moz-list-bullet and ::-moz-list-number will become the aliases for ::marker. I don't found the similar alias mechanism like CSS properties.
