Hi list,

In LaTeX, I can reference quite a lot of things using the \label/\ref
mechanism.  Is there anything like this in Org?  Grepping the docs for
"reference" didn't help.

In particular, I'd like to be able to reference to some item on a
numbered list without hardcoding the number.  Is that possible? (Of
course, I accept that the reference might be rendered only after
exporting to LaTeX or HTML, for instance.)

TIA,

This is done with <<foo>> and [[foo]] syntax:

     1. one item
     2. <<target>>another item
     Here we refer to item [[target]].

For more information, see (info "(org) Internal links").
