  • I like the low bandwith TOC.  The only problem is that It is currently formatted like this.

    MSDN HOME

    Current Topic

    It would be better to have
    MSDN HOME
    Parent Topic
    Current Topic

    Thanks!

  • Diggy,
    Thanks for your feedback. We did discuss this area befopre implementation and decided aginst your suggestion due to API topics like this http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.xml(loband).aspx. The child of current topic will be lost due to the large number of topics under parennt topic. Thoughts?

  • Ah.  I see.  That's a tough one.  My first thought would be to color or box in the MSDN home section so it looks a bit different.  That way it wouldn't feel like the topics should flow in hierarchical order from it.  But I agree.  The last thing I would want would be to lose the child topics.  That's the best part!
