You don't need a special paragraph format for initialisers ( <n=1> , <a=1> 
).  Suppose three paragraph formats, ProcedureHeading, Step, and SubStep.

Then set up these numbering builders in the Numbering tab of the Paragraph 
Designer dialogue:

ProcedureHeading      < =0>< =0>
Step                  <n+>< =0>
SubStep               < ><a+>

The ProcedureHeading then automatically resets Step and SubStep numbering 
to zero.  The Step then resets SubSet numbering to zero. The first Step 
_after_ a ProcedureHeading will be numbered 1, and subsequent steps will 
increment.  The first SubStep after a ProcedureHeading or a Step will be 
numbered 'a', and subsequent steps will increment.

The article at <
http://www.microtype.com/resources/articles/AUTONUM_DE.PDF> expands on the 
above notion to encompass chapter, section, figure, and table numbering, 
completely eliminating initialisers and allowing all numbering to be in a 
single number flow.
