[texhax] Reference to lists in Roman numerals

Hey Diego I found your post a tex user site (pasted below).  I had the same question.  I realize its been some time, but just in case you still want a solution I figured something out which works, though it is not very elegant... (neither of the renewcommands worked by itself to solve the issue)

\renewcommand{\theenumi}{\roman{enumi}}
\renewcommand{\labelenumi}{\roman{enumi}.}
\begin{enumerate}

\item some point

\item \label{needRefLaterA} some point referred to later

\item another point

\item \label{needRefLaterB} another point referred to later

\item point which refers to item \ref{needRefLaterA} and item \ref{needRefLaterB}.

\end{enumerate}

How about outside the enumerate block can I still refer to items \ref{needRefLaterA} and \ref{needRefLaterB}?

HERES HOW IT TURNED OUT IN THE PDF...
i. some point
ii. some point referred to later
iii. another point
iv. another point referred to later
v. point which refers to item ii and item iv.
How about out the enumerate block can I still refer to items ii and iv?

Hello there,

I've created a list with roman numerals using the commands:

\begin{list} {\Roman{enumi}.}
{usecounter}{enumi}}
item \label{aaa}...
...
\end{list}

However, when I want to make a reference to one of the
items in that list, i.e.

\ref{aaa}

I get printed the value of the counter in arabic numerals
instead of the Roman version. Is there a way for changing this
value to Romans?

Thanks,
Diego Ruiz
