Kindle conversion chapter links

If I am starting with a text file, is there an easy way to format the chapters titles so that they will be functional links in the kindle book?

Formatting style: Markdown

calibre also supports running TXT input though a transformation preprocessor known as Markdown. Markdown allows for basic formatting to be added to TXT documents, such as bold, italics, section headings, tables, lists, a Table of Contents, etc. Marking chapter headings with a leading # and setting the chapter XPath detection expression to “//h:h1” is the easiest way to have a proper table of contents generated from a TXT document. You can learn more about the Markdown syntax at daringfireball.
