18.2.3 Ordinal numbers beyond 100

Ordinal numbers beyond ten are unusual and the higher they get they more unusual they are. Very common is that beyond ten cardinal numbers are used instead of ordinal numbers.

unusual: = el centésimo vigésimoquinto huésped

Unusual is here, as it always is, quite relative. There are results to be found in Google also for ordinal numbers beyond ten and also beyond one hundred.
