Additional "numbered" list style types: alpha, roman, etc

Idea

I know that Evernote is neither a word processor nor a Web development tool, but it is based on a variant of HTML (ENML), and I know that by editing the ENML, it is possible to create ordered lists that look like this:

Please make this possible in Evernote on Mac. And Windows, while you're at it: my Windows-loving friends deserve love, too.

Thanks

PS: I will not be holding my breath for this feature. If I did, I would have been dead many years ago waiting for highlighting in different colors then yellow.

I’ve moved the discussion to the General Forum so it’s a cross platform request

To indicate your support for this request; use the voting buttons in the top left corner of the discussion

For those interested in the Evernote format (enml), there’s documentation at https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php

Thanks for moving it to the General forum.
I would vote for it, but I wrote it, so the forum won't let me :-).

You can vote on any of the existing requests for the same functionality...

As a work-around, users have the option of switching out to a dedicated word processing app and adding the document as an attachment    to the note

I find the Evernote editor adequate for simple notes, but for serious work I switch to dedicated editor apps

I've done that, but I have also been known to edit the ENML directly, using the amazing Evernote HTML Editor greasemonkey script from https://andrealazzarotto.com/2015/03/30/modificare-lhtml-delle-note-in-evernote-web/. It's not especially convenient to be forced to use a completely different editor because Evernote can't be arsed to improve theirs. I'd much prefer to right-click and choose the list style type. Even WYSIWYG web editors (notably CKEditor) support this.

You can do it, with little extra efforts..

I wrote it in OneNote and copied it to Evernote, it works as expected !!
