Hi all --

BACKGROUND:  I've been using org-mode to develop the *Common Draft*
annotated collection of business contract clauses, in part for the law
school course in contract drafting that I teach to third-year law students.
 I've been posting the collection as a Creative Commons document at
http://www.CommonDraft.org, and plan to expand and maintain it.

QUESTION:  I'm currently using a single, multi-level table of contents
(TOC) at the beginning of the document.  That ends up being a lot to scroll
through to get to the first chapter.  I'd like instead to have:

   - a one-level "master" TOC at the beginning of the document, listing and
   linking to just the articles (in contracts, "articles" are the same as
   "chapters" in books, that is, the top-level sections); and

   - at the beginning of each article, a TOC listing and linking to the
   subheadings within that article.

EXAMPLE of the desired capability:

[book title:] COMMON DRAFT:  Business Contract Clauses, Annotated and


1.  Definitions & Usages

2.  Arbitration

3.  Assignment of Agreement




1.1  Affiliate Status

1.2  Agreement Definition


1.1  Affiliate Status

Two entities are affiliates if one of them controls, is controlled by, or
is under common control of the other, where "control" refers ....

1.2  Agreement Definition

The term "this Agreement" refers to this signed document as well as its
exhibits, appendixes, annexes, .....

​Suggestions?  ​If it can't currently be done in org-mode but can be
implemented, I'd donate US$100.00 to the org-mode support fund if someone
were to come up with and publish a working solution.  As for doing it
myself in e-lisp, I'm just scratching the surface of e-lisp, so it's not
something I could undertake at this juncture.
