    Speaking in generalities, suggest that you readup on the css info on ordered-lists, you will have to nest your lists:

    ‘for a specific page’ – if your theme uses body_class(), then each page should have ist unique CSS class which you can use in your formatting.

    you seem to be using nested ordered list html tags;
    for general formatting of html lists, see


    ol { list-style-type: decimal; }
    ol ol { list-style-type: upper-alpha; }

    depending on your theme, you might need to use more specific CSS selectors.

    This is on my theme style.css :
    .entry ol li { list-style-type: decimal }
    .entry ol li ol li { list-style-type: decimal }
    /** Make ordered lists increment correctly (1., 1.1, 1.1.1, etc).
    * Source:
    .entry ol { counter-reset: chapter; list-style-type: none; }
    .entry ol li, .entry ol li ol li { list-style: none }
    .entry ol li:before { content: counters(chapter,”.”) “. “; counter-increment: chapter; display: marker; }

    How I use a seperate css for a specific page where I wants to use it ?

    @ripan: several of your examples are missing the ; character.

    How I use a seperate css for a specific page where I wants to use it ?

    Using a browser inspector like firebug, I look at the page I want to customise, in the “body” tag is a class which is specific to just this page, say it is “page-37”, then I could customise the css and target just this page with:

    .page-37 .entry ol li ol li { list-style-type: upper-alpha; }
