We use Interleaf 5, which has a nifty autonumbering feature with the special
added bonus of being able to make an autonumber stream invisible. Writers
can create "references" to any autonumber, visible even when the autonumber
isn't. Any reference can be toggled between the reference value or the page
on which the referenced autonumber appears. So we create invisible autonumbers
all over the place in our manuals, and refer to them elsewhere by page number
("Blah is explained on page X"). Then, wherever the autonumber instance
appears after who-knows-how-many revisions, all the references to it show
the correct page number.

We really like this feature.
