PDF Export not honoring html macro?

My document includes a numbered list interrupted with graphics. To get the proper numbering on the steps, I used the html macro to force the correct number. For example:

<ol start='6'>
<li>Do this. 

The wiki page is very happy with all the correct numbers in place. However, when I export to PDF these
list items are all numbered 1.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there something else I can do to make it work?

Response from Atlassian Support:

Hello Sally,

Thanks for waiting. I was able to replicate the behavior here and thus, I've opened a bug report for you: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-25634

the issue is only caused by the HTML macro, so I replicated using a standard content to show the devs how to replicate the issue too.

I suggest to vote and watch the bug report for further updates. I'm sorry about the inconvenience.

The HTML "start" attribute on the OL element is deprecated - see http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/lists.html#adef-start

Instead, you could try using the "counter-reset" CSS Style - see http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/generate.html#propdef-counter-reset
