The toc element indicates to the processing software that the author wants a table of contents generated at the particular location. If no href attribute is specified on the toc element, an external processor might generate a table of contents at this location. If the href attribute references a topic or map, that topic or map contains a manually created table of contents.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
