I've just had a quick play with Pages via iCloud and paragraph numbering (via Bullets and Lists) appears to be pretty good. It provides simple numbering as well as the Harvard numbering style. Used in conjunction with the indent buttons it seems to work a treat.
'Victims'. To use the word 'victims' in this context is an insult to those who ARE victims. If you're in the middle of a sale, you just can't suddenly leave saying, "sorry it's my break time, can you hang on half an hour, why not play a little solitaire on this wonderful iMac you're trying to purchase?" Or "sorry, it's my break time can you repeat to my colleague here, who will be glad to help you as long as it doesn't cut into her break time too, what you're interested...

But given their financials, Apple has a LOT of room to offer their products at lower prices. They've just...
Hmmm, I'd say impertinent, rather than funny. Microsoft know 'Next' is the foundation of OSX.
