"Real" E-Pub's don't need an "inline TOC" (page).

USING a H1, H2, H3 headeron Text, auto-magically make a nested entry in the "Catalog" (TOC)

Press F7 to see what you have. There are tick boxes to hide entries that used H# tags in places that are not to show as a TOC item.

The advantage of the "Catalog", is it's use does not lose your place in the book as moving to the inline version would.

OTOH if you plan on converting your E-Pub to some other formats, you might need that inline TOC to support the lack of built in TOC features

There was supposed to be the Text between the Heading tags
Code:
<h3>Chapter 99<\h3>
What is between the tags is also usefd as a TOC text.
or

Code:
<h3>title="Chapter 99" &nbsp;<\h3>
If you only want the words to show in the TOC
(or different words)

You need nothing for the TOC to link to the header. It is automatic.
If you want t link the Header to the TOC, No. That trick only works with the manual Inline (Web Browser holdover?) type
BTW Sigil usually puts files in the Text/ folder
Code:
"../Text/yourfilenamehere"

Forget F7. that is the RESULTS of making Header tag values.
Open the document.
Make a Header (h3 type) by placing h3 tags around some text.: TOC entry made. Done
Repeat for each place you want a TOC entry.

The order in the "Book Browser", the within the document., automatically places them correctly, with a link to the proper place.
Simple

After you have done a few, press F7 and see the results of your work.

F7 exists because you might not want ALL uses of "Header tags" to appear in the TOC.. Sigil adjusts your code if you un-tick an entry.

i must be stupid.
i put <h3> around a text, as well in the contentpage as in the actual chapter. i save the document (epub) . when i press f7, i see the entries.
but when i look at bookview or the ebookreader, i cannot click anything to jump from the contentpage directly to the corresponding chapter with the same name

If you want a seperate link, other than the toc links, include in the <h#> tag an id decriptor something like
Code:
<h3 id="chap03">Chapter 3</h3>
then if you need to link to it elsewhere you can do something like
Code:
<a href="#chap03">Jump to Chapter 3</a>
Things to note.
The jump link has a #before the id-name.
The jump link would need a (relative)filename if the target is in a different file.
Code:
<a href="section1.html#chap03">Jump to Chapter 3</a>
Doesn't have to be used for just chapters, I use it for footnotes.
Code:
<p><a id="return01"></a>Here’s a <a href="#footnote1">link</a> which jumps to the end footnote.</p>
and further on
Code:
<p><a id="footnote1"></a>A footnote is here.</p>
<p>When selecting here. <a href="#return01">RETURN</a></p>
Edit: spelling

And you don't have to use empty <a> elements, you can add the "id" to the <p>:

Code:
<p id="return01">Here’s a <a href="#footnote1">link</a> which jumps to the end footnote.</p>

<p id="footnote1">A footnote is here.</p>
