A.1, A.2 would be fine. Actually much better. The problem is this
would only work for TeX. I need to generate other outputs too (html and

This is the obvious solution, but I'd really like to avoid it.

I understand the reasons now.

However, I think, for the future, TeXInfo could provide a command
equivalent to chapter, section etc. where one could specify the method
of numbering (letters, numbers, roman numbers...). TeX is able to do
that, so it should not be a big problem.
