What helped me when I had more complicated numbering strings was to
set up a spreadsheet. The first column contains the tags that need to
be included in the numbering series. The first row contained a
description of what the number was for. You plug the numbering blocks
into the cells, and it's pretty easy to track when a reset needs to
occur and the like.

Remember when using a numbering string to provide it with a series tag
(e.g., "H:" for headings) and to have the same number of blocks in
each tag's string.

That is, if your Heading1 is "1." and Heading2 is "1.1" and resets
after each Heading1, then BOTH tags should contain 2 blocks. For

Heading1 numbering string is "H:<n=1>.< =0>"
Heading2 numbering string is "H:< >.<n+>"
