I have a <ol> list with a  {list-style-type: upper-roman} . Inside of it is another <ol> list wich is decimal by default. But after converting HTML to DOCX this inner <ol> list becomes "upper-alpha". I was trying to set a class for the inner <ol> with a style="list-style-type: decimal" but it doesn't work.

Thanks for sending the information about your license.

About your question, we have tested it and it's working perfectly. If we run the following code (it's very similar to one of the included samples in the package):

require_once 'classes/CreateDocx.php';

$docx = new CreateDocx();

$html = '
ol.c {list-style-type: upper-roman;}
ol.d {list-style-type: decimal;}
    <ol class="c">
        <li>Item 1</li>
        <li>Item 2</li>
        <li>Item 3</li>
        <li>Other items:
            <ol class="d">
                <li>Item 3.A</li>
                <li>Item 3.B</li>
                <li>Item 3.C</li>
        <li>Item 4</li>


And the list and its sublist are correct opening it with MS Word 2007 to MS Word 2016, LibreOffice 5 , LibreOffice 6 and other DOCX readers. Please run this code standalone with your license of phpdocx 8.5.

You can also use custom list styles. On (List section) you can see a sample about how to use MS Word numbering styles to style HTML lists.
