In my response to Alison's numbering query, I included one bit of real
stupidity. We corresponded off-list about it, but I thought I'd better
correct myself on-list before I confuse someone else. 

The problem is in this part:

Umm ... yes, you do still need separate Heading1 and Heading1App pgfs.
The <$chapnum> variable will take care of changing "1" to "A," but
nothing's going to automagically change the hardcoded text "Chapter" to
"Appendix." Oops. 

(My excuse is that our template uses the same pgf tag for both because
its autonumber contains only the <$chapnum> variable, no text string. So
I didn't think...)

Sorry 'bout that! I'll slink away now and call it a week...
