    Using type attribute for List element in CSS

    If I want to have roman numerals or alphabets (upper or lower case) , I can do that using "type" attribute in an element as shows in code below.

    This type attribute is deprecated for CSS. So if I want to display roman numerals or alphabets or want to start numbers as 7, 8, 9.... instead of 1, 2, 3 using CSS, how can I do that ?
    Code:
    <html>
    	<head>
    		<title>
    			Assignment 5 - Lists
    		</title>
    	</head>
    	<body>
    		<h3>Assignment 5 - Lists</h3></br></br>
    		<h4><font color="red">Ordered List of Star Wars Movies</font></h4>
    		<ol>
    			<li>The Phantom Menace</li>
    			<li>Attach of the clones</li>
    			<li>Revenge of the Sith</li>
    			<li>A New Hope</li>
    			<li>Empire Strikes Back</li>
    			<li>Return of Jedi</li>
    		</ol>
    		<h4><font color="blue">Unordered List of Harry Potter Movies</font></h4>
    		<ul>
    			<li>Philosopher's Stone</li>
    			<li>Chamber of Secrets</li>
    			<li>Prisoner of Azkaban</li>
    			<li>Goblet of Fire</li>
    			<li>Order of the Phoenix</li>

    			<li type=i>Two Towers </li>
    			<li type=i>Return of the King</li>
    		</ol>
    		<h4><font color="orange">Ordered List of historic movies with upper Roman Letters</font></h4>
    		<ol>

    		</ol>

    Learn CSS

    Try searching for CSS ways to style lists -- for eample

    http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_list-style-type.asp

    You do NOT want to be using deprecated <FONT> tags. Take some time to learn about CSS (Caascading Stylesheeet)s

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    body,td,th {
      font-family: "Palatino Linotype", "Book Antiqua", Palatino, serif;
      font-size: 1em;
      color: black;
            }
    
    ol li { list-style-type:upper-alpha; 
    font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; 
    font-size:medium; text-align:left; }
    
    ol ol li { list-style-type: lower-roman; }
    </style>
    
    <ol>
          <li>first Alpha</li>
          <li> two
              <ol>
                  <li>second nested</li>
              </ol>
          </li>
    </ol>
