Hi Karl

I think I got sloppy in the numbering.....

1. Specifying Conformance
1.1 A conformance clause is essential
Principle 1.1a:  Include a conformance clause
Good Practice 1.1a:  Define the specification's conformance...
Good Practice 1.1b:  Specificy the conformance clause

1.2 Specify how to make conformance claims
Good Practice 1.2a: Provide the wording for conformance claims
Good Practice 1.2b; Provide an ICS

The numbers can be before or after the Principle/GP:  for example as shown 
above or
1.2a Good Practice
1.2b Good Practice

or we could have
1.2 Good Practice A
1.2 Good Practice B

Which ever you think is clearest.
We could also keep the numbering in order, regardless of it being a P/GP, 
for example
1.1 Principle A
1.1 Good Practice B
1.1 Good Practice C
1.1 Principle D

I think I prefer this.
