I'm interested in the same thing. In addition to looking for a
tool to create a TOC and index (see "HTML TOC and index from many
files?"), I've been searching for a Java applet that could display
the TOC.

Take a look at the Java Boutique at
Several navigation applets, including cuppaTOC, SIRFreeTree, and
TreeApplet, look like they might do a simple collapsing/expanding TOC.
(Note that these applets were designed for a web site, not an HTML
document; I'm not sure how much adapting they might need.)

Can anyone tell me about the performance issues/tradeoffs involved
with using a Java applet for the TOC? I understand that download
time increases, but would a small applet add enough to be noticable?
