Ok - will do (must just make some time).

comment Any tricks to using Microsoft Word to build cross-referenceable requirements statements in test plan documentation?
What you've suggested can only be used to produce a single standard "list of figures". Sure, I could use custom labelling to rename "figure 1" to be "SRS-O-001" and set the caption to "No blue M&Ms", but I can only do this once AFAIK. Word 2010 does not provide enough styling control over figures, captions and "Table of Figures" to produce anything even half-way decent. I need to generate multiple custom x-ref tables, as appropriate for test/requirement and specification/requirement correlation.

an update: I implemented this using a style assigned to the "requirement reference" and a fixed table layout. Then VBA code is able to search for all instances of the style, navigate the table and copy the results into arrays. After a full document search (had to implement a stupid hack to store the location of the first hit, as the search method can't just search the document once), I could generate tables containing the "discovered" data. Voila! If the requirements are updated, re-run the VBA macro to generate a new table. Copy and paste excess columns if required. Nasty, but it works.

Hmm. Possibly a very valid observation! Yes, my question is test/QA related, but it is very Word technical...

comment What other standards exist for Hardware QA?
I searched long and hard through all the Stack Exchange sites, but none were precisely appropriate. I took a chance coming to sqa as it was closest (and had some relevance to my other questions). This question has already received 1 down vote (but 2 up votes). I welcome other suggestions.
