<item> contains one component of a list.
<list type="ordered">
   <head>Here begin the chapter headings of Book IV</head>
   <item n="4.1">The death of Queen Clotild.</item>
   <item n="4.2">How King Lothar wanted to appropriate
  one third of the Church revenues.</item>
   <item n="4.3">The wives and children of Lothar.</item>
   <item n="4.4">The Counts of the Bretons.</item>
   <item n="4.5">Saint Gall the Bishop.</item>
   <item n="4.6">The priest Cato.</item>
   <item> ...</item>

Whatever string of characters is used to label a list item in the copy text may be used as the value of the global n attribute, but it is not required that numbering be recorded explicitly. In ordered lists, the n attribute on the <item> element is by definition synonymous with the use of the <label> element to record the enumerator of the list item. In glossary lists, however, the term being defined should be given with the <label> element, not n.
