Description Netoholic 2005-02-09 21:09:24 UTC
Now that we have paging for categories (200 articles) and also the "from=X" 
structure, we should also implement a "table of contents" solution like we 
have for articles.  At the English Wikipedia, an effort has already started to 
do this with templates (see, but that solution seems 
short-sighted, inefficient, and could potentially grow out of hand.

On all categories which page over, dynamically generate a table of contents 
which will jump to the desired heading.  The table should not display if the 
category is small (under 200 articles), such that paging is not necessary.
Comment 1 Netoholic 2005-02-09 21:24:44 UTC
Let me also add that, with this feature, we can reduce the overall number of categories. 
Specifically those sub-categories that are used only to sort by names ([[Category:Books 
by title]]).
