perhaps I miss something here, but how do you propose  to handle
forward references? 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

on whether <div id="foo"> is a child of <back> or not. Its not clear
to me how multiple output streams handle this and
