Thanks.  Combining "-c CONTENTS_OUTPUT_LOCATION=inline" and "-c 
brings back the old arrangement.  Almost.  Because now each menu item is 
by a colon.  :|  Not good.

Also, using those options and an @contents command, the menu is flush against 
left margin.  But without the options and without @contents, the menu is 
indented.  The latter looks much better.

It would.  However, the links don't work: clicking them does not lead anywhere.


(Also, I don't want the loud "Short Table of Contents" header.  Is there a way
to suppress that?  I like that the list is numbered instead of bulleted, but do
not want the header.)
