If you have the URL of the folder, but don't know what's inside the folder, a browser won't generally display any of the content unless it finds an index.html file (or something like an .htaccess file, if the server supports it). But if we have nav.html and rename it to index.html, then any browser will open index.html when you go to the folder URL. It's just a convention that makes it easy to find this critical document.


For my understanding: what this means that the 'index.html' (or 'nav.html') would not only be the TOC but something much more complex, essentially the cover page of the publication, right?

What this touches upon is my question the other day, which is still something to discuss: if the URL 'U' identifies the PWP, what does a HTTP GET return? My approach, up to now, was that the return would be the manifest. In your case, would it be the index.html that links to the manifest?

Just musing loud: it may well be that the URL for the PWP is *not* the same as the URL for that directory. In which case there is no contradiction…
