This looked like an interesting problem:

Pretty tricky.  This exchange got me thinking about a problem we're having with numbering document (developer documents, by the way <gr>) appendixes. 

It seems to be impossible to use Heading1 both for numerical chapters and alpha appendixes (1, 2, 3, 4, ..., A, B, C...).  What we're doing is to supply the developers with a template for their document and a separate template for the appendix section.  Is there a way to play with Heading1 so that I can use it for both for the chapters and appendixes?
