Thanks Jirka -- your mail arrived just as I was replying to myself on
the list.  I did, indeed, do this and it worked.  As I wrote in
another mail, it is only a bug in links from the TOC -- links to
anchors with colons in their names within the HTML itself seem to work
fine.  I can only assume it's a bug in IE.
