It works that automatically, at least for us. For example, this markup:

<para>Ordered list item 2a.</para>
<para>Ordered list item 2b.</para>
<para>Ordered list item 3.</para>
Gives us this result:
1.Ordered list item 1.
2.Beginning of sub-list 2.
a.Ordered list item 2a.
b.Ordered list item 2b.
3.Ordered list item 3.
as it is, i just verified that, but it's not clear from the
"docbook: tdg" book that this is what would happen. the synopsis
table claims that numeration for an orderedlist is "none", yet
on the next page, it states that if numeration is not specified,
arabic numerals are used.
and there is no mention of the default numeration for sublists.
is there another part of the book i should have been looking at?
just being typically confused.
The numbering style is established by the stylesheets, and
the Definitive Guide does not document the stylesheets.
It documents the element semantics, and provides some
guidance ("processing expectations") for how a stylesheet
should handle the element. But there can be many
different stylesheets for DocBook, with different styles
