Thanks so much for this NumberedEquation style. I was trying to use
the EquationNumbered in Mathematica and it would break and do weird
things and I got tired of trying to figure out what the problem was.
Your's works fine. Thanks so much!!!

This way of doing equation numbering is easier than David Park's
Presentations package (just using styles instead of several other
Mathematica functions) but Park's way has advantages as it "remembers"
equations and associates them with names that can be invoked without
using tags. More work but more versatile.
