1. Locate the following CSS file in your XMetaL program files directory:


2. Save a backup copy of the CSS file and open the original in an editor.

3. Add the following at the end of the file:

[class~=”topic/ol”] [class~=”topic/ol”] {
list-style-type: lower-alpha;

4. Save the CSS file and then reopen your XML document in XMetaL (or switch views, e.g. switch between Normal and Tags On).

NOTE:  This should give you alphabetical items for any ordered lists that happen to be descendants of any other ordered lists, regardless of what other elements may be present.  I have not looked at the behaviour of the default PDF stylesheets, so I do not know if this is the exact same behaviour.
