I'm thinking just using a simple list is a better idea than using a table. Lists, while even the simple basic <ol> or <ul> may not look ideal in some reader apps, they do at least work for the most part. In an app that won't show the numbers and makes an <ol> look like a <ul>, the list items do appear in order and work fine. Tables seem iffier, especially with a long table of contents, or one where the chapter titles are on the long side. That could get really ugly at larger font sizes.

I wouldn't bother with an internal TOC list at all, except it seems to be needful for the Kindle conversion navigation.

I guess I'll do some testing, see which looks the least worst to me.
