I am working on a small document, less than 20 pages (more like 15), and
I was wondering if I should include a TOC and/or and index. I have
usually followed the "rule" that everything has a TOC and any doc over
25 pages has both a TOC and an index; but now there is some question as
to whether that is the case. Opinions/personal preferences/standards?
Any/all views would be appreciated.
