I propose we use hard-coded numbers for setlists and tracklisting, so that when one copies a list, they get the numbers too. This is uncoventional I know, but it drives me nuts when I copy a setlist and then have to renumber it. If we do it once, it will save others from having to type in the numbers following a cut and paste.
I'd like to see us code it like this:
01. Still<br> 02. Upon A Veil Of Midnight Blue<br> 03. Veronica<br> 04. Speak Darkly My Angel<br> 05. Almost Blue<br>
to get this:
02. Upon A Veil Of Midnight Blue
04. Speak Darkly My Angel
05. Almost Blue
The above method is preferred instead of the conventional way:
# Still # Upon A Veil Of Midnight Blue # Veronica # Speak Darkly My Angel # Almost Blue
to get this:
- Upon A Veil Of Midnight Blue
- Speak Darkly My Angel
- Almost Blue
(which, when you select with a mouse, does not grab the numbers)
