Hi Pablo,

thanks for your clarifications. My thinking was that I didn't want my table
of contents page to have a page number, but I didn't realize that the ToC
head acts as a chapter head, so you can just get rid of the page number in
the way you suggest.

So just leaving out the makeup works fine, thanks!
