I don't see any response to this, so maybe I'm not the only one who
doesn't understand. :-)

What do you mean by "bookmarks are misaligned"? Clicking the bookmarks
doesn't take you to the correct destinations?

But your bookmark destinations are headings, not body/normal text,
right? So why do you think body/normal text has something to do with
whatever the problem is?
