Hello everybody,
    is it possible to have a kind of "autoreferences" in a HTML document?! Something
like the \cite command in LaTeX or the references inside Ms-Word. I mean: I have a HTML
document that is divided in a number of files. One of this files contains the
bibliography of the document: this is a OL with some LI inside... Now: in the other
documents, at this moment, I'm using CITE [number] /CITE where the number is the numer
of the LI (the number you just see in the browser) and it is manually inserted. The
bibliography is often modified or updated so the number might change... May I refer to
the LI number (position of the book inside the bibliography) in an automatic way?!
    I thought about a "solution-style"... LI(id='name') bookdata /LI and, something like
CITE(???='name')/ for the CITE tag. Does exists such a thing?!?
    I hope I was clear... In any case I'm ready to explain better my problem...

	Marco Bresciani
