If you eliminate the "on page 16" portion of the link, the link will be
useless to any reader who prints it out.

How about a compromise? Get rid of the quotes, keep the page number, but
blue-ify only the heading--not the page ref.

Result: To create a process on page 16
<blue><blue><blue><

Code:

<blue><$paratext><Default Para Font> on page <$pagenum>

On paper, the reader gets a heading along with the useful page number (but
no quotes). In PDF, the reader gets a link, but the semi-irrelevant page
number is de-emphasized.

Cheers,

Sarah
