Since the id of the target is available, it wouldn't be
hard to get the page number Bob, but I don't think it would
be much use, since I've provided the text for the link.
  I found that moving the id value to the parent
resolved the links.

Is there any guidance (tdg perhaps?) as to what makes good / bad
endpoints for links?

yes. I'm hoping its a param.

Experimentation found that out. Thanks Bob.
As above, where do you think this 'advice' should be?
(or is it available, just me that hasn't found it?)

I'll presume its working in later versions Bob,
and leave it at that.

I'll chase up color for links.

Thanks for the help.
