Subject: Re: [office] Proposal for lists/numbered paragraphs

Originally sent 17 March: got mailing list errors...

I like this proposal.  I also think that it might be nice for us to post a 
sample XSLT for converting from text:list form to text:numbered-paragraph 
form, and vice versa.  Even though best practices will usually tend to 
indicate one or the other, such examples will help imlemetors understand how 
to deal with toolkits hat lean one way or another.
