But that is not what the warning message means.  The warning message
is trying to say that there are two or more 'nodes' (which there
shouldn't be).  That is, one Heading has, say, hypertext links to it, 
specified by a newlink named 'heading1'.  Another heading has other 
hypertext links to it, specified by =another= newlink also named 
'heading1'.  The distiller knows that newlinks should be unique, so it 
warns you when there is more than one newlink with the same name.  Acrobat 
does its best with this situation:  it uses the first newlink it finds, 
even if it's the wrong one.
