Topic: TXT2PDF Syntax For Bookmarks

This may be somewhat off topic, but I'll try anyway since I've seen reference to TXT2PDF here.

We currently use TXT2PDF and it works great to dynamically convert text files to PDF. What I'd like to try to do is generate an index page as the first page and create links or bookmarks (whatever the PDF name is) to pages within the same PDF file (like a table of contents in a manual). For example, if I have a list of names on the first page, I want those names to be links to the page they start on in the PDF. If 'Bill the Cat' were a link and the page that 'Bill the Cat' started on is 37, what do I have to include in the text file in order to create the link to page 37? I've e-mailed Sanface and didn't get a reply yet (over a week ago). The documentation isn't the greatest. They say it uses native PDF syntax but I can't find or figure out what that is.

Any help would be appreciated.
