Do you need to do anything more complicated than what I did in my tiny program. As I said in an earlier post, If all you want to do is change DC tags into their numbers, a simple-minded program to do that is:

That Xyquest's Hardcode is overkill is, I suspect, true. But (and I have to look more closely at the code) I think yours is way to simple. Look, I use heavily nested ACs, sometimes 6 or 7 deep. Plus a Chapter counter. And (at least im my grammar magnum opus) also have written-out counters (One, Two, Three, etc), for which the top-level counters get reset.

Just to give you an idea:
Part One: The Parts of Speach
Chapter : The Verb
 Properties of Verbs
	 The Present Tense
and so on.

Now I almost always use the decimal style of numbering (1, 1.1, 1.1.1, etc; I think I heard somewhere that Wittgenstein introduced that schema in Tractatus?) But others might prefer the more traditional I, A, 1, a, i.

And DC is the command you give to set them up; it's C1, C2, etc that you use to invoke them.
