Return of the woes with MS Word nested ordered lists.

After getting nested numbered lists in Word working earlier, thanks to lisanne, I have encountered the same problem again. All I did was apply a style to the body text and make a minor change to that style. Now my numbering is screwed again.

I just don't feel that word processors have a good style/structure system. Well, I've heard that OpenOffice does a better job than Word in that area, but I'm not convinced that it would be significantly better. Give me structure; keep the style separate.
