The coworker is one of our professional services consultants. She's
been writing up implementation checklists lately for the various
flavors of installations for her personal use. I haven't asked, but
I'm assuming that's what she wants the style for.

Our implementations can be rather lengthy and complex, so we're
talking long lists of steps that need to be performed in order, often
by different people, on different servers. So both checkboxes and
numbers make sense in this case. Even if , as Mike opined, they are
ugly as sin. ;-)
