You can get the following:


. . . if you go to the Bullets and Numbering > Multilevel (Tab)>Modify
(option). On level 1, remove the "." from the "Text After" text box.
Move to level 2 (slider bar on Modify MultiLevel List dialog box
switches the level). For this level, remove the "." from the "Text
After" text box and insert a "." in the "Text Before" text box. Move
the slider bar to access the next level down and repeat the same process
as used for level 2.

I have not been able to insert a trailing 0 in only the top level
without it appearing in the lower levels.
