Greetings, glorious techwhirlers--
I received several useful suggestions for fixing my table of contents
problems. For everyone's information, Lisa Miller's suggestion worked like
a charm. Not the one about creating two files, the one about cutting and
pasting everything but the ending paragraph mark into a new file. It was
indeed a corruption problem, as I had suspected, and that fixed it nicely.
(My fellow tech writer--who's suffering burnout--saw me celebrating in my
cubicle as the new toc serenely updated itself and said, "You're really cut
out for this business, you know that?")
