[NTG-context] Creating a PDF named destination

  Hello all,

This seems to be a very obvious FAQ but I can't find an answer anywhere. 
How can one create a named destination in an output PDF file such that 
an HTML link to <filename>.pdf#nameddest=<name> will work?

I'm using Mk II in case that is relevant. I kinda assumed that a section 
title with an ID would automatically create a named destination with the 
same ID, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

So given a file generated from

\chapter[myid]{My chapter}
Blah blah.
\section[myotherid]{My section}
Blah blah.

I'd like to be able to link from an HTML file to the named destinations 
myid and myotherid using the #nameddest URL construct above.

Hope it makes sense and thanks for any help.
