In Chinese, I think 100 is $B0lI4(B ("one hundred"), whereas in Japanese 100 is just $BI4(B ("hundred"). And in Japanese, zeros are not used when writing numbers a certain way: 205 is $BFsI48^(B, not $BFsI4Nm8^(B, although it can be $BFs!;8^(B.
This is why to me the HTML option "number the list in Han numerals" is humorous.
