Hi David,

In the HTML that you're asking for, are you only asking for HTML headings
etc. in which case you would rely on browser features to jump from section
to section?

Or are you asking for a table of contents listing the sections up front?

Or a link at each section to jump to the next section?

I'm asking some of this wearing my tool hat since it would be possible for
a tool to add such links to a correctly marked up document.

certain documents (primarily our enforcement guidances and compliance
manual - rather long, dull legal documents) to be done in plain text. It's
still easier, but it's less accessible, so I'm now insisting on HTML. I
haven't had a chance to fix the older documents, but I'll move that higher
up the priority list. I may take your suggestion and do some quick
navigation mark-up as a short-term measure - good idea.
