The Table of Contents simply consists of the subject lines from the rest
of the FAQ, excluding "Subject:", and preferably indented.  The subject lines
should be exact copies of the section headers.

This is only a suggestion.  There is no existing software that parses this
data.  The intent of using exactly the same strings as the subjects is
so that users can use search mechanisms to find specific sections.  If the
subject line is too long to fit in a table of contents line, it is suggested
that you truncate it at a convenient point - the search will still work.
