Just today, you committed a change to the fusion/doc/sequence.qbk
without the corresponding changes to the HTML. (Because we were
discussing it, maybe?)

So I just generated the new Fusion HTML docs and did an svn diff. The
resulting diff file is 1,617 lines, and is too large for me to post
here, weighing in at 112K. The vast majority of those diffs are
spurious, such as:

  -<a name="id857416"></a><p>
  +<a name="id843910"></a><p>

Can you tell me why I'm getting so many diffs? AFAIK, I'm using an
up-to-date quickbook.exe.
