Thank you for your reply.  The "number" attribute is simply the value of
another field.  It describes the "field" with a number instead of a
name.  It's just another way a identifying the "field".  It's pretty
straight forward.  I apologize for the confusing sample data, I should
have given it more thought.

What would then the value of the "number" attribute be for this field?
In other word, what is the relationship between the field name (as
stored in the "name" attribute) and the "number" attribute?
