    definitely not old roman numerals. modern roman numerals general appeal to a more educated audience, whereas regular numbers more to the common reader (in my opinion.)

    Just for the potential regularity of the size of the links I think I'd go with the regular numbers.

    Looks good but I think the underlines need to be dropped so they don't overlap the descenders. Of course that means you'd have to use text-decoration:none and a bottom border to get the effect.

    And done. So, is that a good use of words, Roman Numerals, and regular numbers?

    Are you SURE I shouldn't use the old roman numerals?

    old roman numerals are cluttery. the "modern" system cuts down on space and effort.
