I'm working on the table-of-contents for a documentation project, and started out wikifying the TOC to see what articles we're going to need. However, since it's grown kind of big, I'd like to find a tool that can present it to me visually -- some sort of component that can take this nested structure and turn it into a tree or an organizational chart.
Any ideas? I'm not even sure if this should go here or on Stackoverflow...
http://astuteo.com/slickmap/ is pretty good at turning a nested list into a sitemap.
but wouldn't some sort of outliner be more appropriate or a mind mapper?
This page gives information about an XSLT file that generates an HTML page that shows a tree-view node diagram on an XML input page, it sounds like it could be what you are looking for.
Alternatively, an application to visualise and modify the structure of the XML may be more useful. Try starting with this one. Java based apps and various IDE or workflow plugins are also available :)
<ol>s would work well.
