The @prefix-word attribute can be used to prepend a word such as “Step”, “Method”, or “Procedure” to a list item, in addition to, typically, a number (thus “Step 1.”).

<list list-type="arabic">
<list-item id="bid.11">
<p>Formatting: submissions are not in the proper 
Seq-submit format.</p>
<list-item id="bid.12">
<p>Identification: submissions may be missing the 
genome center tag, sequence name, or Accession 
number, or this information is incorrect.</p>
<list-item id="bid.13">
<p>Data: submissions have problems with the data 
and therefore fail the validator checks.</p>
