Readability's Like Table Of Content

Hi,

I need help about creating Table of Contents like below:
Spoiler:




I try to look at the Calibre's Edit Book, part of the code are:
Code:
  <head>
    <title>Readability - 09/23/14</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
  <link href="stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
<link href="page_styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
</head>
  <body class="calibre">
<h1 id="filepos212" class="calibre1">Readability - 09/23/14</h1>
<ul class="calibre2">
<li class="calibre3">
<a href="index_split_001.html#filepos1865">The Failure of the UN: Rebuilding from the Ruins</a>
</li>
and the sytlesheet.css for "calibre2" and "calibre3" are:
Code:
.calibre_2 {
    color: black;
    font-size: 0.75em
    }
.calibre1 {
    display: block;
    font-size: 1.5em;
    font-weight: bold;
    line-height: 1.2;
    margin: 0.67em 0
    }
I tried to replicate the pattern above but no succeed, the Table Of Contents is still displayed as "list" not like "table".

Please suggest me about what to do. I don't have skill in coding, only a very bit.

Thanks.

    }
Considering the code snippet you posted uses ul (Unordered List) and li (List Item) tags, it's going to display as a list. You might want to locate a book where the table of contents is wrapped as in your sample and see how that code is written. Better yet, locate 3 or 4 books. Then it's research not plagiarism.

Thanks, i have ~200 unread articles from Feedly this year and collect them into one book as an "end year archive" with Calibre's Instapaper recipe.

i try small:

Code:
<ul class="calibre2">
<li class="calibre3">
<a href="...">Article 1</a>
</li>
<li class="calibre3">
<a href="...">Article 2</a>
</li>
<li class="calibre3">
<a href="...">Article 3</a>
</li>
</ul>
(and next Article 4 with it's code)
(and next Article 5 ...)
Then transfer it to Kindle Touch but the TOC still the regular (the same).

I plan to full replicate the Readability's code, but that may take a pretty lot of effort without clue if it will work.

The process of tranfer to Kindle-Delete File-Repeat that hurt me the most 💔

Why do that? It’s just HTML. You can test it in a web browser.

Because only Kindle displayed it likewise. I tried in Sumatra PDF, Calibre Ebook Viewer, Adobe Digital Editions, and Edge browser but they not display it as Kindle.

Later (because of your suggestion), i check the Kindle storage and found the original file format is .pobi. and Calibre automatically convert it to .epub when save to disk library. (but Calibre will convert it to .mobi if it by drag and drop). Now i know why only Kindle displaying the book differently.

I think the code must be done in .pobi. or just covert it to .pobi because i have the .docx as the source (the docx is produced by Calibre, i did that because easier for me to edit the book)

I Will take a look at .pobi topic and will move on if it take too much time. Thanks

kindles have a special periodical format. This is created using calibre's fetch news function. Not via regular conversions. It is this periodical format that has the special table of contents display.
