That's what Markdown will use in the output. But your input will
look like this:

    1.  Celtics
        a. Bird
        b. McHale
        c. Parish
    2.  Lakers
        a. Magic
        b. Worthy
        c. Kareem

Or, maybe like this:

    1.  Celtics
        (a) Bird
        (b) McHale
        (c) Parish


    2.  Lakers
        a) Magic
        b) Worthy
        c) Kareem

I'm a little worried that using letters and dots will lead to
accidental lists.
