I am coding around a little to implement this feature in [Js-Markdown extra](http://tanakahisateru.github.com/js-markdown-extra/) and I wanted to also implement *all* list-types, like lists with letters and roman numerals (see [examples online](http://www.echoecho.com/htmllists02.htm)).
My problem is that this creates an ambiguity (which may be seldom, but anyway):
``b. text c. text`` is clearly starting with index 2 in letter type, but ``i. text j. text`` (letter type, starting at 9) and ``i. text ii. text`` (roman numerals type, starting at index 1) are ambiguous. So are several other roman numerals: `ìv`` could be roman 5 or followed by ``iw``.
Are there any proposals on how to solve this problem? Maybe just escape the roman numerals with a backslash ``\i.``? Or use two dots ``i..`` or followed by a braket ``i.)`` for roman numerals (Then we could even use ``1..`` or ``1.)`` as roman)?
I personally favor ``i.)``-style, but i would like to hear your opinions (and weather you think it's a good idea to implement it).
