> FWIW, I didn't try dealing with header nesting because a lot of the HTML to be processed was very poorly written. If I had, the TOC would have looked haphazard.

actually I don't know yet how to deal best with wrong nesting.

E.g a h6 following a h4 would be ignored now (or added to the last h5 which is nonsense*)

I don't know if it's better to

  • include the missing intermediate levels
Or
  • ignore the heading
A warning should be emitted anyway.

Another nice to have would be to parse already available anchors, to allow multiple runs.

Again the problem arises if a new anchor should be generated or the last one taken.

I think all of this should be configurable, but so many options make this already a candidate for a proper module. ...

*) actually this explains weird problems I saw with latex beamer and wrong nesting. .. cool insight into alien code.
