[Q] Table of Contents Creation from Single digits & no Headings?x

Hello, I could have sworn there was a thread somewhere on this forum for TOC generation using different XPath examples for somewhat oddly formatted Chapter indicators, but I can't find it again.

I'm just trying to create a TOC from the html files that simply has the chapters as '1' and '2' and so forth through '23' on their own lines. E.g:

<p class="calibre_2">1</p>
<p class="calibre_2">2</p>
etc.
<p class="calibre_2">23</p>

How would one accomplish this? Presumably w/ the generate ToC from XPath wizard? Thank you!

I would convert those chapter headings to real heading tags.

Find: <p class="calibre_2">(\d+)</p>
Replace: <h2>\1</h2>

Then you can run the TOC generator which will find the <h2> tags.

Sorry, should have also mentioned that you will need to style the <h2> tag in the css file.
Or maybe you could reuse class="calibre_2"

If you want to reuse, then the replace should be... <h2 class="calibre_2">\1</h2>
