Yes.  Digester will fire whatever rules you assign to the given element as
many times as that element appears.

It depends on what you want to do with these elements.  Originally I was
going to say that you handle <number> exactly the way you handle <entry>,
there's no difference.  Give us a description of what you would like to have
happen and we can tell you how to do it. 

I'm guessing that you have something like an Entry bean, with an owner
property and a numbers property that returns a collection.  If you have a
method addNumber() in your Entry bean, then just use a SetNextRule() to call
addNumber and pass the contents of each <number> to your Entry bean.
