Hi Nathan,

you need to have a line in your collect.cfg file

format DocumentContents true
(p43 Developers Guide)

and you need taging like in the demo collection document "The Courier - N°158 - July - August 1996 Dossier Communication and the media - Country report Cape Verde" Look at the source ref: ec158e.htm in the gsdl/collect/demo/import folder

You will see the the TOC is generated from the Title metadata in the description blocks of the Sections; (as per p36 Developers Guide)

You can also have paged documents with a pageflipper / goto page number selector by having the chaper titles being 1,2,3 etc.

Look below to see a chopped up version - where I have tried to show the TOC heirachy by inserting some CAPS text of my own

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<META NAME="Generator" CONTENT="Microsoft Word 97">
<TITLE>&lt;&lt;TOC1&gt;&gt; The Courier - N�158 - July - August 1996 Dossier Communication and the media - Country report Cape Verde</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

Hi

When a document is displayed (especially
journal article / book / theses) either through
Browsing/Searching, Is it possible to display the
Table of contents (i.e. the different headings and
subheadings, just like book-marks in MS Word document)
of that document and to select and see whichever
portion of the document that is required. If possible,
pl tell how it could be got.

[There is a mention as "Tagging source document files"
in the GSDL documentation. Is it possible only with
HTML documents or possible with other documents also
like pdf, word? ]
