Sorry to be so long in responding: for some reason, your post only showed up when I resorted Eudora's table of contents for the Xy mailbox.

At any rate, one of us doesn't understand the other.

Well, we still don't. But don't apologize: I've been, and will be for the next few weeks, as busy as the one-armed paperhanger of cliché.
which should put out: 5.3.7

First of all, that's still counters. We're trying to convert them to real, ASCI numbers (because other programs, like WP, when they see an autocounter, want to format the whole paragraph the way THEY think it should be formatted).

Second, if you did your DC command correctly, and you're using decimal style counters, that's what you have already. And by the by, I was wrong about having to reset counters after a C0 (chapter) counter; you can incorporate, e.g., DC 0=I.1.

Let me redefine the counters for the sample file I was using and try your routine again. But I think it may have gotten trashed in transmission (that "unknown command" error message). Could you please send it again, off-list, as an attachment.
