The W3C Nu Markup Validator (aka HTML5 validator) now has a "Show outline"
feature, for generating an outline of the headings of the document being
validated -

  http://validator.w3.org/nu/

Press the "Options" button to see the full list of options.

The feature conforms to the outline algorithm defined in the HTML spec:

  http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/sections.html#outlines

...which means that it doesn't simply generate the outline based on the
level of the h1-h6 headings -- it also considers, e.g., the nesting level
of headings with <section> elements and such.
