/ "John W. Shipman" <john@xxxxxxx> was heard to say:
| Using DocBook, is it possible to set up references within a
| procedure so that step numbers are inserted automatically?
| For example, I want to be able to refer to step 4 within step 1
| in such a way that if I later add a new step between steps 1 and
| 4, the reference will automatically change to refer to step 5.
| We're using Jade 1.2, Modular Stylesheets, and Jadetex.
| I would prefer pointers to existing documentation, but I'll take
| what I can get.

This should work:

<step id=xxx>...</step>
<step id=yyy>...</step>
<step id=zzz>...Go to step <xref linkend=xxx>.</step>

If it doesn't, that's a bug.
