Quick Q for the FM gurus out there. What I have at the moment are x-refs along the lines of:

...enable you to carry out a quick search (see Quick Search on page 22 for details)

We're investigating single sourcing (TCS) and I can see amending the x-re so it only has <Quick Search> as the link so that with conditional text it now reads:

...enable you to carry out a Quick Search.

My Q is, is there any way to do this where it picks up the heading but in lower case? Or if I use a x-ref marker (quick search) can I have the marker text as the link? I feel it SHOULD be easy and I'm missing something simple. Please tell me I am... J
