Currently I can't find a reliable way to specify custom style for the numbers (markers) in numbered lists of paragraphs in WeasyPrint — that is, for HTML like this:

<ol>
  <li><p>Urkkk!
  <li><p>Clank!
  <li><p>Glurpp!
</ol>

<ol>
  <li>Biff!
  <li>Ooooff!
  <li>Bang-eth!
</ol>

being able specify styles for the numbers.

  • The spec defines the ::marker pseudo-element ... but that's a draft which says it isn't ready for implementation yet.
  • Putting a counter in li::before and setting some margins and padding is suggested by some, but that only works for short list items that directly contain text; for list items that contain paragraphs, <p> starts a new line, under the li::before. (This isn't a WeasyPrint bug; it's a defect in this approach.)
  • Floating or absolutely positioning the li::before avoids that limitation and works fine in browsers. But in WeasyPrint, if the list item starts near the bottom of a page, sometimes the <li> gets bumped on to the next page, leaving the pseudo-element hanging on the previous page. Chrome appears not to do this (though possibly the page-break simply wasn't being triggered in quite the right spot.) I fear that this is related to #36. I see also there are other issues involving list marker positions (such as #287 and #55), but I'm not sure if they are relevant once the marker has been positioned or floated.
  • For lists with paragraphs in, a workaround could be to apply the desired number styling (such as colour and font) to the entire list, then undo that for li > p. That obviously wouldn't work for lists that don't contain paragraphs. Handling both types of list would require applying different styling to an <li> depending on whether or not it contains any <p>s. The :has() pseudo-class would allow determining that ... but is also a draft, and not implemented by any browsers either.

So I don't know what specifically the bug is here — but surely WeasyPrint should provide some way of achieving this.

  • but that's a draft which says it isn't ready for implementation yet.

I think that it's implemented in other browsers, it may be a good idea to implement it. Even if it's a draft, it better than the very little things defined in CSS 2.

  • This isn't a WeasyPrint bug; it's a defect in this approach.

You're right.

  • Chrome appears not to do this (though possibly the page-break simply wasn't being triggered in quite the right spot.)

I think that's an open question, one of the many undefined behaviors with page breaks. It's not directly related to #36, but definitely is with the CSS fragmentation spec that could solve #36 when implemented.

  • For lists with paragraphs in, a workaround could be to apply the desired number styling (such as colour and font) to the entire list, then undo that for li > p. That obviously wouldn't work for lists that don't contain paragraphs.

Looks like a really bad idea 😄.

So I don't know what specifically the bug is here — but surely WeasyPrint should provide some way of achieving this.

Implementing ::marker is the way to go. That would probably help #55 and #287 too.
