Numbered headings

A numbered heading is a <heading> element in PSML which is preceded by an automatically generated number when published.

User Interface

In the user interface, a numbered heading appears with one or more x's separated by dots so that the user knows that a number is to precede the heading. The number of x's varies depending on the heading level.

Source data

In PSML, a numbered heading is marked up using the @numbered attribute.

For example, in PSML, a numbered heading level 1 is marked up as:

<heading level="1" numbered="true">My Chapter</heading>

Published data and processing

Because the numbering depends on other titles in the same document, or other documents if the content is transcluded, it is only resolved when the document is published or processed.
