Sorry. I wanted the Preface to be there., but that messes up the numbers. Is it possible to have a Section 00 and then the chapters would correspond to the chapter numbers. Do you mind changing the numbers? I tried but wasn't allowed. If you would rather omit the Preface, we can do that.

The section and chapter numbers are now the same (with the Preface being section zero).
