No, they will have an WYSIWYG editor that they will be using for 
editing the final document.

Sort of.  My main concern is that if they add or delete a paragraph 
that will 'break the cross referencing.

For example there are four paragraphs, 2(i)(a), 2(i)(b), 2(i)(c) and 2
(i)(d).  Paragraph 2(i)(d) contains a reference to 2(i)(b).

Now if they add another paragraph between 2(i)(b) and 2(i)(d) or delete 
one, it will break the cross referencing.

Thinking about it I need to do something like give each para an ID and 
then where there is a cross reference use some sort of custom markup to 
indicate which paragraph number should be displayed.  Then parse 
through the document to make sure that the correct numbers are
