I'm taking legislative bills and when I generate a pdf for the bill, I
need line numbers to start when the first para start.  Previously,
before we switched to xml, we had it setup so that numbers reset after
every page.  However, this is no longer needed.  Just as long as each
line has it own number.

So yes, the problem is how to populate an element with information
generated only at print time. :-/
