Not with CSS, that's how!

  <li value="3">This is item three.</li>
  <li value="50">This is item fifty.</li>
  <li value="100">This is item one hundred.</li>


  1. This is item three.
  2. This is item fifty.
  3. This is item one hundred.

I only I had read the HTML5 Doctor articles we were putting out at the time 🤦
