Thanks everyone!  The document is an Aircraft Maintenance Manual (does
anyone else on this list write an AMM?)

Let's say we have a Class Divider, an Overhead Bin, and a Lavatory
that all need a description chapter, an installation chapter, and a
repair chapter.

So our TOC will be

Class Divider Description
Class Divider Installation
Class Divider Repair

Overhead Bin Description
Overhead Bin Installation
Overhead Bin Repair

Lavatory Description
Lavatory Installation
Lavatory Repair

What we want the TOC to look like is this:

25-23-01 Class Divider Description
25-23-01 Class Divider Installation
25-23-01 Class Divider Repair

25-51-01 Overhead Bin Description
25-51-01 Overhead Bin Installation
25-51-01 Overhead Bin Repair

25-41-01 Lavatory Description
25-41-01 Lavatory Installation
25-41-01 Lavatory Repair

But we don't want the actual Chapter Title to have the XX-XX-XX in it.

You can see that the number changes among the components, but doesn't
change within each component's related chapters.

It's looking more and more like I'll have to put the XX-XX-XX within
the chapter and change the text to white.

Thanks all!
