I've always found ordered lists annoying to write because inevitably I
get halfway through the list before I realize that the order is wrong.
I then must suffer the tedium of fixing up ordinals. Upon finishing the
list I realize that the order is *still* wrong, so I lather, rinse and
. . . well, you know the rest.
Though markdown somewhat addresses this by allowing me to use repeated
or out-of-sequence numbers, I find it odd that I might write in a text
and produce an HTML document that renders as
I noticed that `+' isn't used in the current syntax. May I suggest
using it in an alternate syntax for those of us who wish to ignore the
numbers in their ordered lists?
