Placeholder in TOC epub

When compilling to epub with htlm TOC, the result is the place order itself at each item instead of what it stand for


istead of


or whatever is the page title…

Any clue on how to fix that ?


You’d need to be using a different placeholder there, that one is designed for print media oriented output, such as PDF or word processing, and specifically only works in the header/footer fields. Epub files don’t have any such thing of course.

What is it you are attempting to accomplish with this setup, by the way? I might be able to suggest a better placeholder to use (though immediately <$title> comes to mind).
