I've attached a xslt that does most of the brunt work in rationalizing the 
id/names for H? elements. It removes the auto-numbers and generates new 
names based on the text() of the H? element. If the H element was 
particularly long or had some funky characters so does the id, these can 
easily be regexp'd out and the id's length manually tweaked. Once that's 
done, I can also whip up an xslt for the TOC if you want.

(Of course, once you do this, I hope your app is capable of editing xhtml 
<smile/>. If it's the line numbering you want, this can be done with 
capable CSS2 apps:
    P:before {    
      content: counter(paragraph) ". " ;
        counter-increment: paragraph 

Opera's the only one (on Linux) that does it so far.)
