As I mentioned before, this is a general issue it seems to me, and I'd want any solution here to at least recognize that. Consider the fact that one cannot now include lists or blockquotes or whatever within a paragraph, despite the fact they are almost always conceptually connected (in the sense that a user typically understands them to be). The business of list numbering and its relation to the identity of lists is the same underlying issue. I''d also like to point out that I'm increasingly seeing the impulse to stretch the style concept beyond what I'd call it's proper role. So before we do that, can someone define exactly what styles are and ought to be in ODF? I'd say they define a class of content type, to which presentational information may -- and typically is -- attached. They DO NOT identify any particular instance of a such a class. Bruce
