Example of table of contents
This example is taken from a software database. Note the following features:
- The table of contents (TOC) occupies less space vertically than the corresponding tree items, even though both use the same font size.
- The TOC contains hyperlinks to index articles (e.g., CD-ROM- »), used to collect articles with similar titles into their own subtrees for compactness. Each index article has its own TOC, which means navigation is still possible even if View ⁄ Article only (Ctrl+F12) is selected.
- TOC items may be boldfaced or otherwise formatted differently for special emphasis.
- An asterisk added to the end of a node title (e.g. Chat (IRC) software*) distinguishes the node as an alphabetical cross-reference to the main node (differently titled) which contains the data. This helps when the titles of both nodes appear in search results.
- Each index article commences with a hyperlink to INDEX, which is not part of the inserted TOC.
