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 : 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
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 mucho appreciated.
