Question 1: I assume that you are using Word 97. Yes, this is buggy
behaviour and AFAIK you are SOL.
You could use a different style for the first line of any numbered list and
create a macro to automatically reset the numbering to one for lines with
this style... but that is clearly a workaround.
As for question 2, I assume that you have sections in your document. If so,
you must specify the section and the page(s), e.g. s1p2-s1p6
Hope this helps,
