Issue: According to a native Greek speaker, the lower-greek and
upper-greek styles aren't actually used. I've removed upper-greek for
now, but kept lower-greek because CSS2.1 included the keyword. Do
these have actual use-cases?

@counter-style lower-greek {
        type: alphabetic;
        glyphs: '\3B1' '\3B2' '\3B3' '\3B4' '\3B5' '\3B6' '\3B7' '\3B8'
 '\3B9' '\3BA' '\3BB' '\3BC' '\3BD' '\3BE' '\3BF' '\3C0' '\3C1' '\3C3'
 '\3C4' '\3C5' '\3C6' '\3C7' '\3C8' '\3C9';
        /* '=CE=B1' '=CE=B2' '=CE=B3' '=CE=B4' '=CE=B5' '=CE=B6' '=CE=B7' '=
=CE=B8' '=CE=B9' '=CE=BA' '=CE=BB' '=CE=BC' '=CE=BD' '=CE=BE' '=CE=BF'
'=CF=80' '=CF=81' '=CF=83' '=CF=84' '=CF=85' '=CF=86' '=CF=87' '=CF=88' '=
=CF=89' */
        /* This style is only defined because CSS2.1 has it.  It
doesn't appear to actually be used in Greek texts. */

(However there is lower-serbo-croatian and upper-serbo-croation,
lower-macedonian and upper-macedonian. I should ask for
lower-slovenian and upper-slovenian ;)

You need to ask Thomas about his opinion, but I see no reason for not
using lowercase greek for mathematical purposes.
