This example, combined with some rather strong opinions expressed on this
list recently that tables should be avoided at all costs, got me to
thinking. I thought "divs are cool and all, but would I use them to
mark-up a *Table* of Contents?" So I came up with the following version:
Granted, it uses a single table for each line. I thought perhaps the
whole Table could be put in one table, you could apply a border to the
bottom of each row, then put a 0 pixel border on the cells and do a border
collapse? I still don't quite understand that yet.
Whipping this off the top of my head in one evening, I didn't come up with
a good way in mark-up to express the parent-child relationship between
sections and their sub-sections either, but neither did the original
example. Maybe somebody can come up with something better.
Not that this is a pressing issue.
