Hello all, first off, if anyone wants to learn how to implement automatic numbering in a single quick lesson, see H. Burke Jenson's web site : www.coloradokidd.com/mathematica/notebooks/index.html which was of tremendous value to me.... now that i'm able to number sections, chapters, equations, etc. w/ ease, the next problem to arise is the ability to reference that number elsewhere in the text. (e.g. "we see from equation (12) that..."). this needs to be done in such a way that if an equation is inserted before the one being referenced, so that the referenced equation becomes number (13), then the reference to it will also change. in the above mentioned web site, he states this can be accomplished by the ambitious by using the functions CounterLabel and CounterReference which he says "don't quitework yet". There is no reference to these in any documentation. anyone here know how to accomplish this task -- with or without the above functions? responses either here or to dexter at csd.uwm.edu mucho appreciated. -don.
