Interesting.  I'll have to check that out

Actually, its pretty consistent in what's off.  Main
chapters and larger entries do the (-1) offset, while
smaller topics that are nested farther down seem to go
right where they are supposed to.  One of the things I
want to try fix...If anyone knows anything about how
linking works in PDF's, I would appreciate feedback. 
There is a way to put a target offset on links, but I
don't think that that is a solution to the problem.
