\item First item
 \item Second item

The enumerate environment produces a numbered list. Enumerations can be nested within one another, up to four levels deep. They can also be nested within other paragraph-making environments.

There must be at least one \item command within the environment.

Each item of an enumerated list begins with an \item command. The optional label argument of the \item command, if given, suppresses incrementing the counter. If not given the default labels are taken from the counters, enumi, enumii, enumiii, enumiv for the four allowed levels of nesting, respectively.

Editor's note: I have not been able to override the default numbering scheme, for example, by using
 \item[\Roman{enumi}] text of item 
. Any insight would be appreciated -- SG
