I don't care if it works in Frame, as long as it works in the PDF! And I suspect part of the problem is, as I said, because I was not working in the fully structured environment we maintain on our server. FM2016 is set to the structured interface on my personal laptop (we all have it that way), but without the EDD/DTD, I couldn't get anything meaningful in the elements list. Once I used the server-installation of FM, I was able to add an fm-xref, which is I think an internal definition(? or yours, I forget which) that allows us to refer to paragraph tags as well as elements for xrefs.
With luck, FM2015 will be installed on the server soon, and things will do what I want them to do.
