#515 — Section numbers out of sequence

Several sections have numbers that are out of sequence, e.g., 13.5.1 follows 13.6, follows I'm not sure how this can happen; Word should be able to number sections automatically.

Historically, the Word source of ecma-262 has not used automatic section number. Presumably, this is to prevent unintentional renumbering as we try, when practical, to preserved section numbering across versions.

However, this result in the sort of bugs identified here which tend to get detected and corrected relatively quickly.

corrected in editor's draft

fixed in rev10, Sept. 27 2012 draft

Verified in rev 26 draft that the two examples mentioned in the description are now numbered correctly.
