+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #90534 +++
The court requires documents to have the numbers 1-28 in the left margin. (Word puts these in the header.)
Attachment 114701 [details] is a DOCX document that includes said line numbers as expected by the courts.
Here's how it looks in Mac Word 2011: attachment 114709 [details]
Here's how it looks in a recent build of 5.3 alpha0: attachment 127334 [details]
In LibreOffice, the line numbers are missing.
Indeed, this docx file opens broken, different.
But no, it is not related to the format required by the court - one could get the needed result in another way too.
Even more broken in 126.96.36.199
wrt severity: Just a 'normal' formatting issue

In Word there is a very extreme paragraph in the header:
- it has Line Spacing of 792 pt at least. This makes it as tall as the whole page (visually this value is similar to a spacing above the paragraph), so the frame containing the table containing line numbers and double line right border fits.
- It has left and right vertical borders so that they are visible on the whole page.
The line spacing pushes the header to be an "overlay" over the whole page content. This does not happen when the file is opened in Writer.
The 792 pt line spacing is similar to what we saw in bug #122628 - Writer has a 10 cm (283 pt) hard limit on it too so 792 pt is imported as 10 cm.
The frame that wraps the table is not imported, only the table in it.
Writer then tries to display the page-sized tall table first, and after that the page tall paragraph with the left-right side borders - and all these in a 0 cm tall header.
These thing can be made visible after increasing the header height to 15 cm and gradually removing the tables contents.
The vertical numbers are displayed if https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/writerfilter?id=bdd4a238a1d8a0cbbebbd759011050659668f92b is reverted

I would assume that in this case a default value just happens to work better than the specified values. That commit just says don't stop processing property values just because one of them has an error. That commit won't help anyone at all, unless there are only a FEW values that would be skipped by the problematic one.
