When I say <ptr target="foo">, I want to display the title of the section whose ID is "foo". But then I want it to say "Section 33 (We go to sea)" or "Appendix 33 (We go to see)", depending on whether <div id="foo"> is a child of <back> or not. Its not clear to me how multiple output streams handle this and > Yep! In the case of a cross reference or index, a string > oriented aggregator could be used (concatination instead > of addition). I think I dont understand that at all..... but perhaps I am in your 10%? > What is your candid thoughts?
