[LON-CAPA-users] fixing an ordered list

How do I fix the following problem.  When displayed in a browser, the  
ordered list is displayed numbered with roman numerals.  However, when  
I prepare a pdf of this problem, the list is numbered with arabic  
numerals.  This makes the foils wrong.  I assume that this happens  
because the xml to latex just turns the <OL> into an enumerate  
environment and ignores the TYPE argument.   For this problem I could,  
by trial and error, figure out what the generated LaTeX has in it and  
adjust the xml to match, but I worry that depending on the how whether  
this problem is included in a homework, or exam folder, it might print  
differently.  Any advice would be appreciated.
