from _The Chicago Manual of Style_, online version:

1.76Numbering sections and subsections

In scientific and technical works, however, the numbering of sections,
subsections, and sometimes sub-subsections provides easy reference. There
are various ways to number sections. The most common is double numeration or
multiple numeration. In this system sections are numbered within chapters,
subsections within sections, and sub-subsections within subsections. The
number of each division is preceded by the numbers of all higher divisions,
and all division numbers are separated by periods,1 colons, or hyphens.
Thus, for example, the numbers 4.8 and 4.12 signify the eighth section and
the twelfth section of chapter 4. The series 4.12.3 signifies the third
subsection in the twelfth section of chapter 4, and so on. The system
employed by this manual is chapter number followed by paragraph number for
easy cross-referencing. The multiple-numeration system may also be used for
illustrations, tables, and mathematical equations (see, respectively, 12.13,
13.13, and 14.20?21).

This would support 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 for the three sub-steps of Step 6.
