parts of the book suffer from a stability problem.
If we add or delete sections (or worse, chapters!), then many URLs
pointing to specific sections will be broken.
To fix this, I propose the following:
Step 1: Enable the parameter "use.id.as.filename"
This will cause each file produced in the chunked HTML to take a name
based on the id attribute of the XML element which caused the chunk,
instead of the plain sequential system used currently.
Step 2: Migrate the values of id attributes away from the primarily
numerical system in use now, instead using descriptive names.
To quote something I've been hearing around the Chicago office lately
(but whose source I do not know):<br>

to your newsletter."<br>
I would like to get clearance from O'Reilly on this, first, though. We
used that scheme because it was described as The Way To Do It
(nevermind it was always a pain in the buttocks...).<br>
