Martin (and Heather),

I completely disagree regarding the TOC on small screens. I like that
wherever I am in the document, I can open the TOC, refer to it, scroll it
up and down, and then if I close it without clicking on a link, I’m back in
the exact same place in the document.

That said, in Sample 3 v2, I’m also seeing the TOC scrolling bug in Safari
on my iPhone 6s. If I scroll the TOC beyond its limits (either up or down),
the main document starts to scroll.

One other small bug with the hamburger TOC button - as you scroll up on the
main document, the hamburger icon slowly scrolls up as well, and less and
less of it is visible the further down you go in the document. When I reach
the bottom of the document, the button almost completely disappears.

One other TOC bug I noticed on the iPhone - if I’m reading, say, section
2.1, then use the TOC to jump to section 5, if I then use the browser’s
“back” button, I leave the document rather than go back to section 2.1.
However, this works correctly on Firefox on my Mac - the back button takes
me back to section 2.1.
