How does one continue paragraph numbering across a dual-column page layout

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Confluence Wiki Markup

How can I continue numbering in a 2-column layout (i.e., list items 1-4 in the left column and 5-9 in the right column)? Every time I try it, the second column begins with item #1.

Unfortunately, you have to use either the Source Editor or the HTML macro to add HTML ol renumbering:

<ol start="6">
  <li>Lorem</li>
  <li>Ipsum</li>
  <li>Dolor</li>
</ol>

You might also get the result you need using the "newspaper" style in the Stylesheet or CSS macro to make text in a div macro flow to multiple columns:

.columnflow {
    -webkit-column-count: 2; /* Chrome, Safari, Opera */
    -moz-column-count: 2; /* Firefox */
    column-count: 2;
}
