Hi David,

Great to see all the documentation improvements you are doing.

The id's should be unique so you can link to them from elsewhere in the
I think they only need to be unique within either the guide or help but
ideally should be globally unique.

Now that you mention it, I thought it would be better to not have id's
unless they are referenced from somewhere else as this may speed up the lint
and xsltproc processes (which seems to be getting much longer recently) but
Frank Ellenberger suggested they be used anyway as that seems to be the
standard. We were talking about sect rather than screenshot id's I think.
