Protel98 can handle the pin number the same as pin name(not sure about 99SE but do not 
see why it should change).
I think that it is important to match as close as possible to real pin numbering. I 
have used the DIN41612
series extensively which has the same pin numbering scheme. I have a three part 
schematic library symbol
part 1 is 1a to na, part 2 is 1b to nb and part 3 is 1c to nc the pin numbering also 
carries over into PCB layout
with out any problems.

This has worked for many years reliably and with out problems.

I think the answer is you have to have the Pin 'Named' as 1a, 1b etc but the
pin 'number' as the usual 1, 2, 3 etc. Then to make it clear on the
schematic you show the name but hide the number, set this in the dialog box
as you place the pins in the symbol editor. All you have to do then is
ensure that the foot print pin numbering matches the schematic pin numbering
(most important, check and re-check)
