I agree these links should be numbered.  I've actually seen several pages
with unselectable links (links with no highlighted text).  The only way I
know they are there is by the [numer] -- and the only way to select them is
ty typing the number.

Since the parsing error recovery went in, some of these "invisible links"
have gone away.  (Either this is due to the error recovery,  or the page
owners have updatead their pages...)  In any case, I think these links
should still be numbered.
