Similar.  On the same article that the annotated screenshot exists,
likely in the caption for the screenshot itself, needs to be a 'key'
of Numbers and the Name of the object that number refers to.  On the
image itself should only be the numbers.  Let me see if I can update
the sample article to give an example(And it would only be an example
of course).

If we need to reference an object within another article, we need to
link to the article that describes that object, instead of using
numbers in parenthesis.

We are limited in our selection of typefaces to what Daisy can handle
at the moment, and I am not anxious to dig into it to see if we can
change it at the moment.  To much else to do when what they provide
for output works pretty well.  In the images obviously we can use any
type face, and in that case, no I did not look at those.  I was
primarily just looking for soemthing that would work and be clear for
it, and am open to change it, but it should be something availiable
easily on both Mac OS X and Linux.
