using css counter-increment to add numbering to elements

i just found this element in css where you can add numbering to elements, very handy to add counters and things. 

This uses the counter-increment: section; in the main element and then adds the numbering counter with content: counter(section); in the before element to add the numbers to the before part of the element. 

HTML

<div class="counter-wrap">
  <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis rutrum sapien non ornare sagittis</p>
  <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis rutrum sapien non ornare sagittis</p>
  <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis rutrum sapien non ornare sagittis</p>
  <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis rutrum sapien non ornare sagittis</p>
  <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis rutrum sapien non ornare sagittis</p>
</div>

CSS

.counter-wrap p {
	counter-increment: section;
  	position:relative;
}
.counter-wrap p:before {
	content: counter(section);
  	display:inline-block;
  	font-size:22px;
  	padding:0px;
  	background:#EEE;
  	color:#444;
  	border-radius: 60px;
  	margin-right:5px;
  	height:30px;
  	width:30px;
  	text-align:center;
}
