That's what I was referring to when I said that there were cell  
options.  I can select all of the cells in a notebook and turn off  
showing the cell label.  However when I create new cells, they don't  
have that attribute and I see the danged labels.

Perhaps I don't know how to "apply this at the notebook level", if  
you mean something other that applying it to all of the cells in a  
notebook.  ShowCellLabel only shows up under Cell Options.  It  
doesn't show up under Notebook Options or Global Options.

In the good old days (i.e. a few weeks ago with 5.2), there was a  
Show In/Out Names in the Kernel menu that very simply turned off the  
labels for all cells in a notebook, whether the cells are existing or  
yet unborn.  That's the functionality I'm looking for.  I'm guessing  
it's out there somewhere, since my old notebooks that I gave that  
setting in 5.2 have this behavior in 6.0.  I don't know how to get  
that behavior for new notebooks in 6.0.
