Dear Ross,

Thank you very much for your response. 
I have always got support on this list. 

The issue is that in the pdf document, 
the figure numbers are present and they 
are hyperlinked to the figure correctly. 

In the html document, the the figure numbers 
are not there, but, there an empty 
button image (without any number) and 
this is linked to the figure. If you click on 
the button, it goes correctly to the figure. 
We would like the figure number here. 

Can provide the files to you if needed and the 
run script.
