In my response to Alison's numbering query, I included one bit of real stupidity. We corresponded off-list about it, but I thought I'd better correct myself on-list before I confuse someone else.
The problem is in this part: > > If it matters, my Appendix heading style (Heading1App) is "A:Appendix > > <A+>:" and my Appendix Table styles are as follows . > > > > Table#A 1 6A = U:Table <$chapnum>\+<n+>: > > Table#A+ 1 6A = U:Table <$chapnum>\+<n+>: > > The "<A+>" in the heading style means use upper-case alpha numbering -- > it's the old way of doing things and works fine in this instance.

Umm ... yes, you do still need separate Heading1 and Heading1App pgfs. The <$chapnum> variable will take care of changing "1" to "A," but nothing's going to automagically change the hardcoded text "Chapter" to "Appendix." Oops. (My excuse is that our template uses the same pgf tag for both because its autonumber contains only the <$chapnum> variable, no text string. So I didn't think...) Sorry 'bout that!
