Shulhan 'Arukh Section Numbers
As it does with respect to the fundamental division into four main volumes, so does the Shulhan 'Arukh retain the Tur's sequential numbering system for the sections within each volume. However the Shulhan 'Arukh goes on to number individual paragraphs within each of the Tur's undifferentiated sections.
The numbers appear at the beginning of each paragraph, as well as at the top of each page.
