1. A mixed list example:

Three reasons to walk to work:

# It saves fuel
# It's good for your health
** Walking burns calories
** Time outside means lower stress
# It's good for the environment

2. When starting an numbered list you can specify a start attribute to be applied:

#8 Item 8
# Item 9

3. For continuation of a list’s numbering from where you previous ordered list finished, you can let Textile know using the continuation character:

#8 Enumerated list, starting by number eight
# List item No. 9

Some text paragraph

#_ Continuing list item, numbered as 10
# Item 11
