      :{)} Well, at least I did qualify my answer that I was unsure what you were
      asking for.

      I'm quite confused that you have wrapped all of your steps into a single
      NumListItem. Is there is only ever one item in the list? if not, what

      This tells me you are successfully introducing the FO structure needed for
      list items from your XML source with a "flat" set of list items. Most
      people do not recognize the nuances involved in converting a flat
      collection into a nested structure.

      Kate's suggestion of using 1 plus the count of previous steps looks sound!
