Threaded ToC thread

I have a book that has a narrative running parallel to the chapters but not strictly part of the same hierarchy. I am trying to format the ToC and nav so it is accessible.

<li><a href="chapter-01.xhtml#_idParaDest-1"> Not Steve</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-02.xhtml#_idParaDest-2">Charlie</a><li>

<li><a href="part-one.xhtml#_idParaDest-3">part one</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-03.xhtml#_idParaDest-4">Parent-Teacher Night</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-04.xhtml#_idParaDest-5">Marley, Marley</a></li>

<li><a href="part-two.xhtml#_idParaDest-6">part two</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-05.xhtml#_idParaDest-7">Trick of the Light</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-06.xhtml#_idParaDest-8">Lucky Rabbit</a></li>

<li><a href="part-three.xhtml#_idParaDest-9"> part three</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-07.xhtml#_idParaDest-10"> Mind Full</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-08.xhtml#_idParaDest-11">Tyla’s Tall Tile Tale</a> </li>

<li><a href="part-four.xhtml#_idParaDest-12">part four</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-09.xhtml#_idParaDest-13">Beyond the Gumline</a></li>

<li><a href="chapter-10.xhtml#_idParaDest-14">The Tombstone</a></li>

<li><a href="part-five.xhtml#_idParaDest-15">part five</a></li>

<ul>

My first thought was to go:

<li><a href=&quot;chapter-02.xhtml#_idParaDest-2&quot;>Charlie</a>
   <ol>
       <li><a href=&quot;part-one.xhtml#_idParaDest-3&quot;>part one</a></li>
   </ol>
</li>

But that’s not actually correct hierarchy wise. My other option is to leave it a simple 1 through 15 and just style the parts differently.

Any advice?

Hi b.keith,

Thank you for this unique topic!

I’d suggest keeping the hierarchy as it appears in the print version and to mark it as an ordered list in the nav. You can then note in the accessibility summary about the parallel narrative and how the book is intended to be read.
