It would be nice to be able to directly get to structural information about
the document, but currently the only way I know of is to force the titles
to include the section numbers in themb by

   $SHOW_SECTION_NUMBERS = 1;	# DO use section numbers in HTML

Then you can extract the information you need from the titles using something
like this:
   $CUSTOM_TITLES=1;		# Do create them from custom_title_hook.
   sub custom_title_hook {
      $title =~ /^([^\s]*)/;    # the section number is (hopefully) 1st `word'
      my $name = $1;
      $name =~ tr/\(\)/_/d;	# translate parens to _
      $name =~ s/\.$//;		# remove trailing .
      $name; }
