Karl,

FWIW, see the para below starting with "Btw, in case it helps...".

The front matter is pretty much like filling in a form.  To a large extent,
the creative bit that you need to understand is what happens inside the
div1.

Hello Antoine,

I haven't done a quick table of contents like that shown, but I have created
a toc that incorporates other things than just headings [1].  

I think it's just a question of adapting the XSLT used with XMLspec. You
don't need to adapt the DTD at all. If you're familiar with XSLT, that's
fairly simple to do.  Just take a copy of the main toc and cut it down a
little.

Btw, in case it helps, I think the main thing you have to focus on to
understand XMLSpec is the tables in section 7 of the documentation (assuming
the docn for 2.1 is still the latest).  I use a doctored version of this at
[2] where I added a row at the bottom of the tables containing element names
to help me see clearer (red stuff is things I added to the DTD).
