Sorry, with a little experimentation, I found an even better way to do it.

Stem-sentence tag - Auto-numbering
A:< =0>\t

List tag - Auto-numbering
A:<n+1>\t

You can then have as many levels as you want in your auto-numbering for
example. I know I have two possible list levels. I would then use this
auto-numbering format.

Stem-sentence
A:< =0>< =0>\t

List-1
A:<n+>< =0>\t

List-2
A:< ><n+>\t

With this, I only need to have 3 styles instead of 5 where each list level
would need a style just for the first number. I do need to have a very
rigorous syntax because if the stem sentence isn't always of the same style
I'm introducing a problem and I can't use the reference to the paragraph
number for paragraph that have the stem sentence style.
