Fix record

The quick fix for my situation was to add this line to the makeAnchorName subroutine in Render.pm: $anchorName=~s/^(\d+_)*//; (and THEN reduce to 32 char limit).


However, if the proper thing to do is INCLUDE the section numbers in the links and anchors, then someone (me?) will have to dig into the ExplicitNumberingPlugin code to ensure that those anchors are being created in a consistent manner that %TOC% expects...

Tom, please raise this bug in ExplicitNumberingPluginDev, and hopefully the author of that plugin will pick up on it.
