Hi Duncan,

Thank you for your prompt answer.

How far forward should I set the dial? :-)

Anything at all would be good - this is pretty much a showstopper for us.
If we can make a link to any heading that would be cute, but if we could
have something basic soon (along the lines of Epoz would be fine - create
the links manually) that would be even better.  I don't know if I can offer
much coding help at present - I'm currently busy migrating the charity's
site (~1000+ pages), and then I'm about 6 weeks behind on updates to my own
site, all squeezed into the hour between my children going to bed and me
crashing out - but I'm certainly happy to help with testing.

Re the naming question, I would be happiest with heading.firstword (or
heading.first_few_words) - that is easiest to understand if I'm hitting the
HTML directly if there's an issue - but I can see that numbering would make
it easier to get unique links.
