    Preferred table of contents tagging?

    _Crockett_ Level 1

      How best to tag a table of contents so that the needs of the user are met? The VA has detailed information, but I have found differing methods on other sites. Currently my structure is below:

       

      <TOC>

           <TOCI>

                <Reference>

                     <Link>

                          1.0 Introduction

                          1

                          Link - OBJR

       

      I mark the dot leaders as artifacts so screen readers do not hear "dot dot dot dot", but the VA keeps the leaders in. Another site keeps the leaders in and puts them in <NonStruct> tags, but these seem to still get read. Any advice?

       

      Second question, same topic: Should I separate out the number from the section in the TOC? I have done this previously, but do not see the value.
