I have created a new patch which handles both the
formats. (The page(section) format has been ignored as it is less common and more tedious to implement.)
This patch also fixes a few typos in the previous patch. This should be my final version of this patch.
Thanks to everyone for the feedback! Hopefully this can get merged :)
