A non-Tech Writing group near to me recently had a large spec with
over 30 appendices in it. They decided to go for a numbering scheme
because of automatic sorting in the ToC.

How would others handle situations where you have >26 appendices?

Appendix A..Z, AA..ZZ,
Appendix 1..99
Rework so that the situation did not occur
Other?

Everywhere I have worked, including the present, has used the A, B, C
configuration for appendices. I find it better because there is no confusion
between Section or Chapter 1. The letter designation is carried in the
figure and page numbers, so there is confusion.
