If I use "sectnum" directive, the table of contents are correctly being generated with section numbers prefixed. But the table would look much nicer if these numbers are not part of the link itself. For example, the html for a line in TOC looks like this:

<li><a class="reference" href="#introducing-a-new-module" id="id2" name="id2">1&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Introducing a new module</a></li>

Preferably, the number "1" should not be part of the link name. The other solution would be to change the way
links are highlighted in the browser (default underlinking doesn't look good with number in the link name). I am guessing that I
can change some style sheet element to change this highlighting.
