[Groff] Resolving Forward References

   As I understand it, groff is a single-pass formatter.  As such, what
is the recommended way to resolve a forward string or register
reference?  For example, using the ms macros, I have a footnote:

    The process of using code coverage is discussed in section
    \*[useModelSectionNumber], \(lqUse Model.\(rq

which references a document section number later in the document.  The
section number is stored in the string register useModelSectionNumber,
after it is computed by the .NH section header macro.

   Thank you for your assistance.
