I have a question for you all. I was going over a section of a user's
guide that a programmer wrote, and he had a section involving software
fixes. Right now, he has them listed as:

1.
2.
3.

etc. I asked him why, that numbers are generally used to denote steps
in procedures and the like. He responded by he likes numbers because
someone else can refer to the document and say "Let't take a look at
fix #3."

What do you all think? Is using numbers or bullets in this situation
the best. I think this might be a decent topic for discussion, what
say you?

Humblest,
