Thanks a lot, Daniel.  This is exactly the kind of solution
I was looking for.

Unfortunately, I run into a nasty problem when I switch language
for babel.  Changing «english» for «nynorsk» as babel option,
the HTML for a TOC entry in the left hand navigation becomes
(for example) this:
<ul id=\penalty \@M \discretionary {tt-}{}{t}\penalty \@M \hskip \z at skip
oc-subsection\T1\guillemotright <li><a 
href="links.html#x16-270003.2" id="QQ2-16-28">Links</a></li>

Evidently, there is some smart mechanism which tries to fix the
quotation marks.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  I don't
quite understand why this is a problem in these particular tags,
and not other instances of quotes in HTML attributes ...
