    Added a budget of links from the FAQ to the Eunuch-Code Data-Bank.

    For some odd reason, the TOC generator is not picking up the first heading — ???

    I'm not sure why the TOC isn't picking up the first heading (does it on other pages), but from a page layout point of view, the TOC should come after the title. In this case, the first heading (Frequently Asked Questions) should be viewed as the title and thus not something that occurs in the TOC.

    Can't be bothered to slurp back through the history to see who complained about the lack of mathlap and its friends, but it's installed now.

    does it on other pages

    No, it doesn't, which is why Urs writes a # Contents # header for it to eat.

    Looking at the HowTo where the first header is included in the table of contents, I suspect that the TOC command does not include top level headers. Some experimentation needed here, I deem.

    I think that it doesn't include a # header if there is only one such header on the page. If there are multiple # headers, then it includes all of them (eg SEAR), but probably if there is only one # header it assumes that to be a page title and thus not necessary to include in the contents.

    Maybe it has something to do with Russell's ParaTocs …

    OK, so we included a contents header why? Ah, because the contents won't show up at all if there is no header before them!

    So is this an argument for making our headers start with ## instead of #, with a header # Contents to be ignored?

    So contents are included with:

    # Contents
    * tic
    {: toc}

    I've gotten tables of contents without a header before them.

    I'm thoroughy confused then. Do you know an example?

    Thanks, Jon. That doesn't match my experiments at the Sandbox; I'm officially confounded.

    Use the source, Luke:

    # If there is only one big header, then assume
    # it is the master
    if s.section_children.size == 1
          s = s.section_children.first
    end

    The WebTeX link on the itex reference card is broken and I couldn't find a WebArchive copy — is there a replacement link?
