Actually the different series labels in my example were 
an error caused by my laziness. I had copied the 
format definitions from the original posting and did
not finish editing them before I sent the message. 
The scheme I was proposing is designed to use the
*same* series label for all three numbering formats.
If the three formats use different labeled series they
will not interact at all, making the placeholders 
unnecessary and rendering the reset feature of the 
step's format nonfunctional. The scheme I was 
trying to propose looks something like:

Step = N:Step <$chapnum>0< =0>< =0>:  Table = N:Figure <$chapnum>0.<a+>< 
>Figure = N:Table <$chapnum>0.< ><a+>

Sorry for any confusion...
