As if Word didn't have enough reasons for me to hate it, they have now managed to scramble where everything is several times so that now the time to fix their
'help" often is longer than the project you are working on.

Try SharePoint Designer and do a couple of nested lists. Of course, Dreamweaver isn't much better with all the <br /> it tries to throw in.

Where's Hot Dog Professional when you need it?

You're using Word 2011, right?

Go to Preferences, then select Autocorrect. Under Autoformat as You Type uncheck Automatic Numbered Lists.

Lots of the things that make Word act unpredictably (to you, not to it) are in the various Preferences. Uncheck Define Styles Based On Your Formatting, too, while you're at it.

If you're in Word 2003 this stuff is under Tools...Options. It's under the Office button in Word 2007, I believe. I can't remember where it is in 2010.

Many, many Word problems can be avoided by throttling its autoformatting stuff and by looking at the other options or preferences and setting them to reflect YOUR preferences rather than the Microsoft defaults.
