Ok, now that's what I meant. So I will try to address that.
In the HTML format, the index will always be in the set of pages contained in the Manual Name link.. for example:
In the CBI-1A Parts Manual, the index is actually Page 1, right after the revision pages. The revision pages are included in the scans when they are included with the manuals that I get. The reason being - some pages and sometimes whole sections are removed by IH for various reasons over several revisions.
Example: In Revision 12, Plow Bottoms are no longer listed, yet in Revision 3 they are still included in the manual. This information is helpful say if someone is looking for plow bottoms but cannot find them. If the revision pages are included, then they know which parts manuals actually have those particular pages and if the manual is on the server, which in this case it is, then the plow bottoms may be accessed. (the reason I know that 3 contains them is that I am actually in the process of redoing Revision 3 and happend to see them).
The reason I broke up the sections to reflect the same separation in the manual is precisely because of the fact that the index must be downloaded with the rest of the introduction section of the manual. This way, if one is looking for Plows-Disk-Tractor which in this manual indicates the Cub-151 and 152 plows, then you can go directly to the next page and download one of the two manuals.
I realize now that this can be an impediment, so I think what I may do is add a second line that will list the index page as a link and that can be accessed first. I have just uploaded the revised main page for the CBI-1A Parts Manual. Let me know if this is better.
Thank you George - constructive criticism is exactly what I need
