ShowTip

If you are creating a table of contents or site map on the same page as the starting point, the heading of the table of contents will be a hyperlink to the same page. For example, if you create a table of contents on the page Index.htm, and the starting point is Index.htm (the same page), the heading of the table will be a hyperlink to Index.htm. If you want to exclude such a circular hyperlink as the heading of a table of contents or site map, click None in the Heading font size box.
