Hi Jeff

I agree having those attributes in the xml doc is mixing layers, but I still
think we need a way to produce slightly different documents. I mean, a flag
in skinconf would disable the TOC in all documents, but not in only a few of

Perhaps site.xml is a better place? It would be something like:

 <index label="Index" href="index.html" notoc="true"/>

Sounds nice.

Whether to generate a toc is up to the skin, which is in the presentation
layer. The flag shouldn't be in the XML content, as that mixes concerns.

How about adding a flag to skinconf.xml for this?
