Semantically awesome ordered lists

So if you were ever trying to style an ordered list <ol> and get rid of those pesky periods after the numbers you may have wanted to give up.

Do not give up!

Much better than manually adding the numbers and styling them in a very un-semantic way. Now of course this works in Firefox and Webkit and not much else, but that's okay. I need it for an iPhone app, so we're good!

nav {
  margin-left: 20px;
  margin-right: 30px;
  color: #666;
 ol { counter-reset: item }

 li {
  display: block;
  margin-top: 10px;
 nav ol li span {
  font-family: 'GothamBook', Arial;
  font-size: 1.6em;
 ol li::before {
   content: counter(item) " | ";
   counter-increment: item;
   font-family: 'GothamLight', Arial;
   font-size: 2.2em;
