Absolutely great advice. I'm learning new tricks.

I have gone back to putting the <$paranum> in the LOF, which is sufficient.

Thanks again

Others have already replied with lots of good advice.  I'll just add 
that a work-around, if you want to sort the list you have, would be to 
convert it to a table, one cell per paragraph, and then sort the table. 
  It's a maintenance headache of course, nothing automated about it, but 
it would accomplish what you ask.
