Dynamic referencing AND hyperlinking for numbered equations

Dear Group:
I use a notebook style that allows using cells for numbered equations. 
When I type notes in text cells, I refer to the equations by number as 
First, I add a CellTag to the cell that contains the number I want to 
 After that I select the cell and use the menu item Find>Add Remove Cell 
Tags to give it a CellTag.
 Then, use the menu item Input>Create Automatic Numbering Object to 
create a counter. Under "Counter Type:" set the type of counter being 
referenced. (For example, NumberedEquation.) Then, select the radio 
button "The first cell with the tag:". In the text field, put the CellTag 
you created. 
This creates a counter in one location that displays the value of the 
counter at the location of the CellTag.
Now, What  I want is having a hyperlink to that equation cell, at the 
same location where I previously placed the reference in the text cell.
I can hyperlink to the tagged cell but in doing so, I loose the dynamic 
reference for the equation  as I described above.

Does anybody have a clue how to do these two things at the same place?
                                    Thanks in advance,
                                               Alex Costa
