Sue Deichmann asks if "there is a conventional way to reference document
sections inside the same document?"

I think this is one of those areas where the writer can choose the most
effective method of presentation, in the writer's opinion, and use that
method consistently.

That said, if there is a house style (for example a department or company
style guile) that solve the problem for the writer; someone else has made
the stylistic choice.

Whatever you do needs to be done consistently. Sometimes using quotes and
sometimes using italics is rather ugly, in my opinion. (Oh, and I would
personally opt to put the section heads in quotes when referencing them
rather than italics. I like to save italics for names of other documents or
books, and for names of screens or other external entities.
