Sorry, my fault, I used a custom style sheet to hide parts of the page 
for printing (to save paper) and didn't realize I had removed the ToC.

I think it is fine as it is. But it might be useful to include a section 
to help people diagnose what the real problem is, as they may have the 
wrong idea. The example "I tried increasing text size but it doesn't 
work" is a real-life one of someone who only accessed a few sites with a 
certain widely-used browser and didn't understand what the real solution 
was (use a different browser).
