Hi Victor,

In this case you need to add an {If} statement to format the internal
nodes (the bookshelves) differently from the leaf nodes (the documents).
The "[numleafdocs]" metadata is only defined for bookshelves, so you can
use this to differentiate them:

{If}{[numleafdocs],<Code for bookshelf nodes>,<Code for document nodes>}
