If you want these numbers to be "on their own", you should
be OK. If you want them to sequence with numbers OUTSIDE
of a text box, there is a problem: Word does not
recognize numbers inside a text box as the same as those
outside. Convert the text box to a frame, and they will

Small correction to (b): They can be used in a style that's linked list
template (= outline numbered).
To change the style:
With the cursor in a paragraph of that style, run the macro code
In Word2000, I can't select this kind of numbering from the user interface.
Though it might be possible in some language versions -- I'm using German.
But another drawback is that even large Unicode fonts like "Arial Unicode
MS" only contain circled numbers up to 20.
Above that, the numbers will appear without circle.
Most other possible wdListNumberStyles are available from the user
interface, or refer to Asian, Hebrew, Arabic, ... numbering systems.
I can see only three others that might be of interest for Latin numbers, and
aren't available from the user interface:
-- wdListNumberStyleGBNum1 for 1. 2. 3. -- though you could get much the
same result with a dot in the numbering format,
-- wdListNumberStyleGBNum2 for (1) (2) (3) -- though you could get much the
same result with parentheses in the numbering format, and
-- wdListNumberStyleArabicLZ (for numbers that are spaced far apart).
BTW, I just noticed that the numbering for cardinal text, ordinals, ...
depends on the language formatting.
So if you format a list numbered "First Second Third ..." in French, you get
"Premier Deuxième Troisième ...".
Wasn't aware of that before :-o
Word seems to use "MS Mincho" or "Arial Unicode MS" if the style's font
doesn't have the necessary characters, maybe depending on the font being
"serif" or "sans serif".
You can change which Unicode font is used with something like
ActiveDocument.Styles("List Number").Font.NameFarEast="Arial Unicode MS"
The large Unicode font still has to be installed.
Nevertheless, this behaviour is pretty neat, since you don't have to use the
Unicode font for the style itself.
