starting an ordered list at something besides 1 inside a cfoutput

if i do the below ordered list, it creates an ordered list starting with 1.

*********
<ol>
<cfoutput query="qname" startrow="41" maxrows="60">
<li><font face="arial" size="2">#firstname# from #city#, #state#</font></li>
</cfoutput>
</ol>
*********

i.e.

1. steve from Denver, CO
2. lisa from tampa, FL
3. joe from nashville, TN
.
.
.

how do i get it to start at 41?

i.e.

41. steve from Denver, CO
42. lisa from tampa, FL
43. joe from nashville, TN
.
.
.

*********
<ol start=41>
<cfoutput query="qname" startrow="41" maxrows="60">
<li><font face="arial" size="2">#firstname# from #city#, #state#</font></li>

You can also have it this way :

<ol>
<cfoutput>
<cfloop query="qname" startrow=41 endrow=60>
<!--- You may assign any number for your parameter "endrow" --->
<li><font face="arial" size="2">#firstname# from #city#, #state#</font></li>
</cfloop>
</cfoutput>
</ol>

Actually, your code should work.  I am referring to the code you posted on your question not on your comments.

Goodluck!

or use #currentrow# along with that cfloop

Well, to be more precise: Better use the following code instead of <ol><li>:

<cfouput query="qname" startrow="41" maxrows="60">

#currentrow#. <font face="arial" size="2">#firstname# from #city#, #state#</font><br>

</cfoutput>

<cfquery name="qryData" datasource="whatever">
SELECT * FROM table1
</cfquery>

<cfset myStart=41>
<cfset myRowcount=60>

<cfoutput>
<ol start="#myStart#">
