Description Nicolas Vérité 2006-08-11 13:52:59 UTC
The __SUBTOC__ tag should display a partial table of content beginning from the
section headline just above this tag to the section headline before the next
__SUBTOC__ tag, thus allowing to display multiple partial tables of contents of
the current page.

__SUBTOC__ should not influence any __TOC__.

I wonder whether this has been requested by Wikimedia editors in the past. I find it excessive, but maybe someone needs something like this in certain contexts?

Is there a particular page or two, or namespace, that you can point to as an example? 

(A couple of examples, in addition to the abstract description, is often the best way to explain a feature request. :)

I've never seen this requested before (at Enwiki).  

I think multiple-partial-ToCs, would be potentially quite confusing to readers and editors - it's not a pattern we're familiar with. (But possibly an example would make the need/usefulness clearer to us?)

The complete list of available ones is at [[Category:Wikipedia table of contents templates]]. I glanced through [[Help talk:Section]] and /Archive_1, but couldn't see anything similar to this request. HTH.
