Characters with ordered and unordered states

I'm looking at characters in Xu et al.'s ceratopsian analysis from the paper on 
Liaoceratops and I'm curious about if it's possible to have character states 
within a character where some are ordered, but others aren't and how this is 
done in PAUP. I know it has something to do with step matrices and I've read 
the manual, but I'm really confused as on how to make 'em.

By the way, I went to the Smithsonian Dinosaur Symposium earlier today and 
yesterday. I'll post on what it was like within the week after I've had a 
chance to get my notes sorted out. It was really good and I hope there are more 
events like this in the future.
