You really should give lyx a try. It has a feature called 'safe new
line' when you press Ctrl-Enter and no new number appears. And when
you've finished with one multi-paragraph item of your list you press
Return and voilą - new item will appears! In the concepts of acronyms
it's called WYSIWYM - what you see is what you *mean*.
