The bullet? In an ordered list?

If it was a "top 10" list it would entirely depend on if your list was 
ordered or unordered - i.e. sequential or not.

Of course, the actual display is a question of style, but UL vs OL is a 
question of semantics.  Using CSS to change the display of a list would 
require some text making the meaning clear.

I've enjoyed the discussion.  Interestingly XHTML 2 provides the 
following example, which will upset us all:

"The series h1 h2 h1 is acceptable, while h1 h3 h1 is not, since the 
heading level h2 has been skipped."
