A numbering system that supports the pulling/modification of procedures
is demonstrated by 16-1.2a. That is, where a dash is used to separate
the page number from the chapter number, and then a dot is used for
change pages that are slipped in, and then a lower case letter for
further revisions to the revision. Eventually, all of the revisions
are recompiled and the document renumbered at the next major change.
