# %item value=2%Second item
This sets the number to 2. I have added this on the example page.
There is also an issue with the first item's continuation line, which in the pdf is treated as "verbatim" text because of the start of line spaces. Another way to write continuation lines in lists using Wikipublisher is with the following markup:
# %item value=2%Second item :+
Second item continuation
The ":+" is an end-of-line markup which wraps the parts of the item in "p" tags. However, this does not let an author place an image between the first item and its continuation line.
The root cause of the problem is that the figure causes the list to close in the pdf version, but not in the html version. Figure handling in pdf is complex and it would be difficult to add support for figures inside other blocks.
