Pearl,

We only reference graphics and don't have any trouble keeping track of 
them (well, mostly no trouble). We name graphics according to their 
figure number or use and UNF for un-numbered graphics.  The rub comes 
when an author inserts a figure and all the figure numbers in the book 
change --- you end up with actual figure numbers being different than 
the figure number in the book, unless you renumber. Our books are done 
by chapter, so the quantity of graphics is usually small enough that we 
renumber to keep things in sync.  If the author adds a graphic its not 
as bad: you just add an alpha to the numbering scheme for the graphic 
(UNF1-1, UNF1-1b, UNF 1-2).
