Hi,

My engineering manager wants me to include chapter numbers for each major topic heading in an online help (chm format). He argues that it's easy to refer to a chapter number specially while answering customer support calls. So, should an online help have chapter numbers?
Online help have a non-linear structure. Besides, online help of popular tools do not have chapter numbers!!
What are your views?
