Summary of Issue: Confusing linkage between documents
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Clicking on a \"Understanding X.Y\" link takes you straight to the \"Understanding\" document, but to get to \"Understanding X.Y.Z\" in the \"Understanding\" document (via links) you need to follow the \"How to meet X.Y.Z\" link to the \"Quick Reference\" document, which then has an \"Understanding X.Y.Z\" link to the \"Understanding\" document.

To further confuse matters while \"How to meet X.Y.Z\" in the guidelines links to the \"Quick Reference\", in the \"Techniques\" document \"How to meet X.Y.Z\" links to the \"Understanding\" document.

It is not clear why (other than a single link to the document as a whole) the guidelines should refer to the \"Quick Referemce\" at all.

Proposed Change:
At the level of individual items the guidelines should refer only to the \"Understanding\" and \"Techniques\" documents, not the \"Quick Reference\".
