I've tried using the SEQ field codes in Word and, your right, it does work pretty well. However, I found it difficult to maintain. It can be time consuming to update larger documents. Once done tho, it is pretty reliable.

In my experience with Word, the only truly reliable way to handle numbering in Word is to avoid the autonumber feature altogether and instead roll your own with the SEQ field code, which you wind up using in a way that is fundamentally pretty similar to FrameMaker's paragraph numbering except that you have to assign a name to each individual digit's counter rather than being able to name a complete multi-digit series as in Frame. Unfortunately, since bullets use the same mechanism in Word, you still have to live with bizarre behavior in that feature...
