Personally I would go with AA, BB, CC, as others have said.

This is different than Arabic numbering. We learn to use numbers in school and we learn that after 9 comes 10 followed by 11, 12, 13, etc. We do not learn to count two digit numbers as a series of 11, 22, 33, etc. So how is a person supposed to intuitively know that appendices are number AA, BB, CC, etc.?

I can see that Microscrewy products use the AA, BB, CC numbering sequence but that sequence does not match logic. Should people use alpha-numbers the way Microsoft wants, even when convention contradicts the scheme?
