Would it be possible to do the sync automatically via the JavaScript
control? It could be possible to do something like:

   <a href = "javascript:tree.load('id.1.2')">Chapter 1.2: Cool Stuff!</a>

With load performing the URL redirection and synchronisation. I am not sure
how portable this would be, but having it done automatically would mean that
there would be less confusion and a simpler interface.
