I agree with Chris - a 1 indicates the first step. It would be confusing
to have it numbered when there is only one step. I would prefer a bullet
or an em dash.

Further to the posting earlier about numbers-for-steps and
bullets-for-lists, my practice is to use a bullet for a procedure
with only one step. A reviewer has just asked me to change this
to a number 1 "for consistency". I figure a number 1 implies
more than one step. What do you-all think?
