Summary0001955: Presentation of extensions documentation degraded compared to 6L38
DescriptionThe way in which extension documentation is presented in the main interface of 6M62 is not as nice as it was in version 6L38. Adherence to the unchanged guidelines for extension documentation results in a presentation of the documentation that lacks:

 - a table of contents
 - color-highlighted and bolded titles for chapters, sections, etc.
 - "expandable" and letter-sequenced example documentation

Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
This can be seen in any extension that provides developed documentation, including those built in 
to Inform 7 such as Emily Short's "Basic Screen Effects" extension. Side-by-side comparison 
with an earlier version such as 6L38 will make the differences readily apparent.
Additional InformationThe same issue also appears in the Ubuntu version of 6M62, so it is not limited to just the Windows version.

I'm not sure exactly how to categorize the "effect" here, so I'm putting it under "Index is created incorrectly" to start. Feel free to modify this. Also, if it is preferable to submit two different bugs specific to the individual implementations (Windows and Linux), close this with a comment indicating that, and I will do so.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is a change in how ni generates the documentation data. It is not handled by the platform IDE. (It happens on Mac too.)

These files are in ~/Library/Inform/Documentation/Extensions (or equivalent on other platforms). "Index is created incorrectly" is close enough for the report, though.

This one's quite problematic for me. I could probably fix it myself if *someone would release the source code for the program which generates the documentation*, hint hint.
