hi;

Version 7.

If I am to consider using Mathematica for writing things other than just 
code, I would need to be able to have table of contents (TBL) and an index 
in the notebook at least.

So far, I could not find a way to do this. Once I create the Title, Section, 
etc.., I need to create TBL at the start and an index at the end, and be 
able to export the notebook to HTML and PDF and have links created 
automatically from the table of content to each separate section and 
subsection listed in the TBL.

There used to be an AuthroTool package, but it seems to have disappeared ? 
and can't find where to download it

What replaces it?

And I do not want to look at publicon, as I am not sure if it is even still 
active (do not hear about it, and no version number or a date on the web 
site)

http://www.wolfram.com/products/publicon/  and I also want to just use one 
program to do everything, not 2. If I am to copy stuff from my Mathematica 
notebook to publicon to create a report, then I might as well copy things to 
Latex as I currently do.

So, some people recommend using Mathematica for doing all the coding and the 
report as well, ie. not just for the code, and I would like to be able to do 
this (simplify life) but without these basic things, I do not see how this 
can be productive.

I hope I am just overlooking something here?

Thank you,
--Nasser
