Numbered lists: Use of numbers ')' : 1), 2), 3), etc.

    I have a numbered list. I can control the type of number with the list-style-type attribute (such as decimal, upper-alpha, lower-alpha, etc.). I want to use numbers, but I want the character after the number to be a closing parenthesis rather than a period. So instead of
    1. xxxxx
    2. xxxxx
    3. xxxxx

    I want:
    1) xxxxx
    2) xxxxx
    3) xxxxx

    Can I do it using CSS?

    I don’t think you can do this yet.

    I see there’s a :marker pseudo element in CSS3, but browsers don’t seem to have support for it yet. I tried it in Chrome and Firefox and it didn’t work in my tests.
