Autonumbered lists[edit]


I think I have a fully functional version of an autonumbering table / columnated list now working as per User:Pee Tern/Sandbox/Template/autonumbered list/doc.

For example:

Rank Name Sex Birth Age Country of Residence

1 Moloko Temo[2] F 4 de julho de 1874 149 years, 153 days  South Africa
2 Maria Olívia da Silva[3] F 28 de fevereiro de 1880 143 years, 279 days  Brazil
3 Tuti Yusupova[4] F 1 de julho de 1880 143 years, 156 days  Uzbekistan
4 Juana Bautista de la Candelaria Rodríguez [5] F 2 de fevereiro de 1885 138 years, 305 days  Cuba
5 Cliceria Gómez-Morales F 20 de setembro de 1885 138 years, 75 days  Mexico
6 Ida Stewart [1] F 5 de novembro de 1886 137 years, 29 days  Jamaica

If you are happy with it I can move it into Template space.

Yes, but how do we not know if YOU'RE lying? Where is the link to this WOP group? --Jkaharper (talk) 22:15, 21 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You might consider suggesting that wp.PT adopt an analogous system to ENGVAR. It would work well, I think. Tony (talk) 09:29, 27 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Haab' Table[edit]

Japf: You can download glyphs from the codices here: These are in the public domain and you can use them in the Haab' table. Senor Cuete (talk) 23:09, 9 April 2010 (UTC)Senor CueteReply[reply]

Also try this: Senor Cuete (talk) 16:29, 10 April 2010 (UTC)Senor CueteReply[reply]

But this book it´s not in the public domain. Nevertheless the figures are not present.Japf (talk) 21:10, 10 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Actually if you read what it says about google books, I think it is. This might be at a library near you. Senor Cuete (talk) 14:18, 11 April 2010 (UTC)Senor CueteReply[reply]

A 60 year old book written in english about maya writing? I don't think so. Relatively to google books, I've been seeing on the news that many people consider google books a crime against copyright, at least in Europe.Japf (talk) 21:30, 11 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I replied on my talk page, and will continue to reply there should you continue the conversation. Cheers.Griswaldo (talk) 18:00, 12 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
