I assume you don't mean hyperlink literally; just an example of how he  
expects things to look but it should show the associated label.

The problem is that by the time the pdf is produced there is no  
``knowledge'' of the original label so you can't pick that up from the  
pdf itself unless you use some package that creates the ``tool tips''  

Good Luck,
