Hi all, got a quick question.

I've got a set of implementation instructions devided into groups
Each group contains how-tos, which are currently called steps. The steps are numbered so that the user can keep track of where they are in the overall process. So it looks like this:

Implementation 1
step 1
step 2
step 3
Implementation 2
step 4
step 5

and so on....

In an introductory paragraph, where I'm explaining how to use the doc, I ran into a problem referring to the steps in the steps. Because of this, I was wanting to rename Steps to something else, I chose Stage, but I'm not really satisfied with it. Can anyone give me another suggestion?

Thanks in advance
