    The Roman numerals are there for the sake of compatibility with older standards only and their use should be avoided. It's better to simply build the Roman numerals you want to use out of the appropriate Latin letters.

Note that the Italians already in the 14ht century built tower clocks with Roman numerals from I through XXIIII (with XVIII at the top, because they began the day at sunset).
