Purpose

Converts the episode number back into the name of the episode. The Simpsons Shorts are assigned the number zero or a negative number since they came before the series premiere, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire".

These numbers will be generated by the Eps-PN template to select the previous and next episodes from the list.

The very last line in the template should be the next-highest number and should equal a blank entry or whatever page is used to mark when The Simpsons offically ends.

Changing episode names and broadcast order

If the spelling of an episode's name changes, that needs to be updated here and on the Eps-In template. See that template's page for additional instructions on how to add overrides to compensate for punctuation issues.

When Fox changes the order that an episode is broadcast, such as when "Dangers on a Train" was moved from the premiere of Season 25 to the finale of Season 24, the episode number needs to be updated, along with any override line that accompanies it. Move the episode up or down in the listing so that the episodes are kept in straight numerical order. Update the Eps-In template to match the change in this template.
