Chapter 6. The Fundamental Objects > Generated Text, Counters, and Quotes

Generated Text, Counters, and Quotes

Sometimes, text needs to be added that is not in the original source. Examples are texts like “Figure 7” or “Chapter XI,” quote marks that are automatically inserted around citations, but also the list bullets and numbers of the previous section.

List bullets and numbers are the most common and are the easiest to specify. Numbering for list items is implicit: There is no explicit mention of a counter in the style sheet. But sometimes, the list-style properties are not enough (for example, when lists must be numbered as A1, A2, etc.). For those cases, CSS provides explicit counters. The same explicit counters are also used to number chapters, sections, figures, tables, and so on.
