    Auto Paragraph numbering-JavaScript

      Windows XP Professional, InDesign CS2, JavaScript. I am looking for a solution and wondering if a writing a script can be written to cover it. Note: I have not done any scripting, just looking into it.
      I have a very large manual that we would like to number the paragraphs, such as in a legal document. Need it to include chapter number and "paragraph number in bold, times new roman 11.3pt. The need is something like: "3.36" "3" being chapter 3, and "36" paragraph 36. Can a script be written to envoke this. It would need to skip some paragraphs and pick up the sequence when needed. Also, if paragraphs were deleted, automatically renumber. I have not found anything already within InDesign to do this.
